iBOTZ - Build your own robot
The iBOTZ range of robots provide an excellent introduction to the world of robotics
and the electronics that make a robot tick.
In the instruction booklet contained in
many of the iBOTZ kits is lots of information about how
your robot works, and what each of the components do.
If you would like to explore a bit further about how
to identify the value of a resistor, or ever wondered
what happens when you connect a resistor and a capacitor
to each other, then we may be able to help.
