Inspire deep and joyful learning with the micro:bit-powered Hummingbird Bit Robotics Kit! The Hummingbird Robotics Kit is comprised of lights, sensors, and motors which allow students to build a robot out of any materials. The power of Hummingbird is in its flexibility - the same reusable kit can animate a poem, model the human arm, build an autonomous rover, or create a pinball machine. Hummingbird epitomizes a low-floor, high-ceiling approach: absolute beginners can build & program a robot in minutes, but continue learning advanced engineering & programming for years.

All Hummingbird Bit Robotics Kits include:

  • Free classroom-tested and standards-aligned learning materials, such as programming tutorials, lesson plans, and printable student activities.
  • Out-of-the-box compatibility with all laptops and most tablets.
  • Free software that is tested to work with school IT environments.
  • Support for 4 blocks-based and 3 text-based programming environments, including Makecode, Python, and Java.
  • Electrically protected connectors that allow students to easily add multiple motors, sensors, and LEDs without risk of harm due to incorrect connections.
  • Options for online and in-person professional development, including classroom and school district curriculum integration planning.
  • Classroom-ready packaging, including sturdy cases, sorting compartments, and stackable containers.
  • Products that have been created and validated by National Science Foundation-funded research at Carnegie Mellon University and tested in classrooms with teachers and students.

Purchase this product as an upgrade to a Hummingbird Robotics Kit you already own. The micro:bit and micro USB cable required to power the controller are not included.
