This amazing and versatile robotic building kit combines not one but two forms of alternative energy as it teaches kids how to construct 12 different exciting robots, each with its own unique form and function!  It's easy to find any number of robot kits that harness the power of the sun to bring the creations to life and introduce kids to the concept of solar energy, but kits that combine both solar and hydraulic power are few and far between.  This new kit will teach your child how to engineer a robot that uses solar and hydraulic power in harmony, while challenging manual dexterity, and developing self-confidence.

The Dodeca 12-in-1 Solar/Hydraulic Robot’s gear box is a true dual threat as it is powered by direct sunlight, and a hydraulic transmission; thus no batteries are required. With Dodeca, children are able to actively learn two forms of alternative energy while they employ their budding imagination to create 12 different robotic companions.  With alternative energy playing such a pivotal role, there is no better time than now to start children on the path to learning the basic concepts behind these technologies.  Using 231 colorful interlocking pieces, kids will build robots from two different categories: automotives and animals.  The possible automotive models include a speedy buggy, a rover that can sense and avoid obstacles in its path, and an excavator and forklift with hydraulic arm/prongs.  In terms of creatures, kids can assemble an elephant, pterosaurs, monkey (watch it move hand-over-hand across a vine or string connected between 2 points!), ostrich, T-Rex, crocodile, scorpion, and dog-walker.

Each model is powered by solar energy, and moves by virtue of hydraulic processes.  The kit contains a wealth of science fair-ready building projects, and makes an excellent gift for the kid in your life who just can't stop building and creating!  The 12 projects in this one kit are sure to keep them occupied for weeks!

  • Incredible, colorful robotic building kit with 12 different models, each with its own unique function
  • Create 4 different automotive models and 8 different animal models
  • Each model is powered by a double XL solar panel, and moves via hydraulic processes
  • Includes 231 interchangeable building pieces and a comprehensive guide for building each project
  • Will teach children multiple forms of engineering, train dexterity, and build self-reliance
