CamJam EduKit #3 is focused on robotics and contains (almost) everything you need to create your very own Raspberry Pi-powered robot.

Kit contents

The kit includes the following:

    A custom-designed, pre-soldered motor controller board (with screw terminals)

  • Two DC motors (with wires pre-soldered)
  • Two custom red wheels (which go extra fast… because they’re red!)
  • A ball castor (used as the ‘third wheel’ to your robot)
  • A small breadboard (to create your circuits)
  • Two pieces of strong 3M padded double-sided tape
  • A battery box for 4 AA batteries (batteries not included)
  • An ultrasonic distance sensor (for detecting objects in front of your robot)
  • A line follower sensor (for detecting and following black lines)
  • Resistors and jumper cables with which to complete your circuits
  • A strong cardboard box to keep it all in… or to cut into to make your chassis!

You will need to provide:

  • A Raspberry Pi, SD card and power supply.
  • A keyboard and mouse.
  • A chassis – anything will do – use your imagination!
  • 4 x AA batteries to power the motors.
