Hummingbird Robotics Kits

Powered by a micro:bit computer and micro:bit software, Hummingbird Robotics kits allow students to turn anything into a robot with micro:bit using craft materials and the electronic components provided.

The Hummingbird Robotics Kits allow students to design, build, and program robots using any materials, with any device, in multiple block and text-based programming languages.

The Hummingbird Kit consists of lights, motors, and sensors which allow students to build a personally meaningful robot out of any materials.

BirdBrain Finch Robots

The Finch robot, powered by a micro:bit computer and micro:bit software, allows students to learn computer science and coding by having them program the robots in multiple block and text based coding languages on any device.

With the Finch Robot, students can complete hands on and engaging physical computing and robotics activities by customizing their robots using the electronic components included.

Finch is currently one of the only educational robotics solutions available that supports programming in Java to support AP Computer Science classes.

Educational Resources

Hummingbird provides a variety of free resources to support educators implementing their robotics kits and Finch robots including projects, lesson plans, and building, classroom integration, and programming guides. Hummingbird also provides free learning resources for implementing their solutions into remote & hybrid learning environments.

Students can get more out of robotics when they combine it with play and hands-on learning. Use Hummingbird to explore basic Physics concepts as robots interact with simple machines.

Robotic Rube Goldberg Machine

  • Challenge your students to design, build, and program their own robot to perform a simple task.
  • Form groups of 2-3 students to incorporate at least two sensors, two simple machines, as well as normal, everyday items.
  • Have students keep a lab journal to document their design, build, and programming process in order to refine and troubleshoot.
  • Each group will present their set-up to the class and explain their simple machines.

Drive student achievement, and career readiness.

Introducing iBlocks, a cross-curricular, holistic learning approach by structuring your learning content with a primary and secondary subject focus. But because iBlocks are also customizable and expandable, these foci can change to suit your school’s needs, should you choose to tailor your iBlock.
