MechRCTM - Tech Learning

MechRCTM

RM's fully assembled, programmable humanoid robot has been developed from the original MechRCTM to provide a solution for engaging and teaching ICT (information and communication technologies) to children aged 14 and up. The robot, which comes with a series of educational-activity guides, was designed with transparent panels to enable easy viewing of the servo motors as it moves. With its programmable software and remote control, it allows teacher-led and small-group activities designed to be used across the curriculum, such as in design technology and engineering.
