Home > MakerSpace > Hummingbird Robotics

The Hummingbird Robotics Kit is a spin-off product of Carnegie Mellon's CREATE lab. Hummingbird is designed to enable engineering and robotics activities for ages 13 and up (10 with adult supervision) that involve the making of robots, kinetic sculptures, and animatronics built out of a combination of kit parts and crafting materials.

Combined with very easy-to-use software environments like Scratch, Snap!, and the CREATE Lab Visual Programmer, Hummingbird provides a great way to introduce kids to robotics and engineering with construction materials that they are already familiar with. At the same time, Hummingbird continues to provide new challenges by allowing programming in Python, Java, and Processing, and by supporting Raspberry Pi.
