The Scribbler S3 STEMtrunk
The Scribbler 3 (S3) robot is the perfect place for kids to begin their STEM journey. The robust, easy-to-use S3 Robot is simple enough to set up in minutes, and is powerful enough to teach engaging activities throughout the year. Programming, robotics, and even math and art are all possible with the S3. Using the BlocklyProp online tool to program the Scribbler is a cinch! It is the S3 Robot’s primary programming environment. Its interlocking blocks with readable text let beginners build programs in an intuitive, visually logical way. The BlocklyProp tool exposes the S3’s encoders to provide control over distance and speed for all possible types of movement. Pre-made blocks support all of the S3 robot’s sensors and motors.
