Parallax’s Scribbler 3 (S3) robot is truly robust and versatile, and it's ready to go right out of the box. This basic, yet capable, educational robot is great for developing early critical thinking and logic skills. Matched perfectly with the visual BlocklyProp programming tool, the Scribbler 3 robot can be programmed using simple graphical blocks that snap together quickly and easily. It has seen a great deal of success being implemented in elementary environments and above, as well as in after school/Makerspace programs with mixed age ranges.
Authentic Development for Younger Audiences
Younger learning groups can get started right away, with no prior knowledge of programming and no assembly required. Its pre-programmed demo modes, durable outer casing, and easy to understand sensor logic make it right at home in early learning environments. It also has a central pen-port that allows the robot to draw as it drives; just put a permanent or erasable marker into the port and activate a driving program. The shell is tested, damage-resistant, and safe for younger users. As well as providing a unique look, it also protects all of the smaller components from damage.
The Scribbler 3 robot is a great first step towards authentic development. The critical analytical skills gained while your students learn the fundamentals of robotics will directly contribute to their success in future studies. 21st-century learning requires 21st-century technology; let Parallax equip the genius in your students with the Scribbler 3.
