Robovation Robot kit

Hey,
I’m Carrie Markesino I’m a mentor on team 857. A part of our team is developing a class for incoming freshman, to prepare them for the season. We wanted to use the Robovation kit because it is more like the FIRST kit. I was wondering if anyone knows how I can buy a new robovation kit.
Thanks!

Here ya go. A bit too pricey for my tastes though.

that is great that you want to start your freshmans off with some great kits. but here are some suggestion which might help you a bit financially, these kits are cheaper than a robovation kit and works for newbies… (i was a newbie at one point of time.) check out parallax, also soldering robot kits might help your newbies to learn. it is always good to start from the beginning and go into hard stuff. it might be just me that i like to learn from the beginning and then get into something more complex. there was a time when i was playing with this robot soldering kits… previously i have done the Hexcrawler project (found at Parallax), the building part of it is easy… but autonomous programming makes you think. these were just suggestions… good luck… :slight_smile:

If you have the old EduRobotics kit, you can buy just the new controller for $250, or contact IFI to see if they would be willing to let you trade in your old controller for a discount on the new one.
