Description
 
Let your imagination go and develop skills, knowledge and experience in robotics and programming through creating fully programmable, sensory and remote controlled intelligent robots through using the RoboTami Creative pack.

The RoboTami Creative Pack is a robot construction kit comprising of programmable CPU, a large pack of clip together construction parts, motors and sensors, remote controller, battery pack and a workbook with instructions to make 9 intelligent Robots. There is also the opportunity to create endless robots, machines, models, all which can be programmed from the included software. All items you need are included.

The Programmable Controller is programmed using the included TronzCard software. Robot programmes are created within the software GUI and downloaded to the robot via a USB connection. (a download cable is included with each kit) . The GUI provides a simple “card” system which can be dragged and dropped to add components (motors, sensors, if statements) to the robot programmes. The software license is provided as a site license, which means you can load on to all the devices within the school (BYOD included) and students can then work on programming tasks more freely. This software is currently PC only.

The workbook provides teaching resource and activity ideas to aid teaching relating to construction, mechanics, electronics, movement, sensing, programming, solving engineering challenges and much more. The workbook provides instructions to make 9 intelligent Robots.

For ages 11 + and can used to engage and teach much older students too. Just check our some of the video's below...

Try using Tami Robot Construction Kits with an Arduino for enhanced programming opportunities and the ability to create a Bluetooth remote controller from your iPad, iPhone or android device.

Robotron Tami Block Creative Kit August 7, 2014
Reviewer: Computer Corner from Sydney NSW  
A little while ago we received an email Matt Gillard from Sammat Education. Matt was very excited about a range of new products from Robotron called Robo Tami. Not only are the products cheaper than other products currently on the market but Matt insisted that they were easier to use and more suited to the classroom environment. We asked Matt to send us a kit so we could review the package for our readers.
The Robo Tami kits enable students to build robots with electronic circuits and develop control programs with sensory robots as well. The resources pack contains step-by-step instructions to build eight robots with electronic circuits and introduces sensors to robots, along with how to program the movement and the actions of the model.
The Robo Tami Creative kit that Matt sent through to us contained all the items you need including a comprehensive set of construction parts, motors, gears, wheels and battery pack, along with "snap together" electronic components too; Controller (CPU and motor drive board), LEDs, touch sensor, light sensor, contact sensor, infrared sensor and buzzer). The kit also includes teaching resource and activity packs to aid teaching relating to construction, mechanics, electronics, movement, sensing, programming, solving engineering challenges and much more.
The Creative kit has five different robots that you can construct and program including: a racing car, a bike, a hippopotamus, a service robot, a drawing robot and an elevator. Being novices at robot construction we were taken back a bit when we opened the kit and saw the array of electronic parts. So we decided to open the manual and construct our first robot.
Fortunately for us the manual was excellent. The manual starts out by showing how the parts fit together by getting the users to create some animals before they create a robot. This is an excellent way of getting the users used to the product. The instructions for creating robots are clear and straight forward. Even primary aged children would have little trouble following the instructions on constructing the robots.
We started with the racing car robot. In next to no time we had the car created, software installed and car programmed. We were impressed by our initial efforts so being the overachievers that we are we turned to the end of the book to create the elevator. The elevator uses an infrared sensor and the button module.
Once again we were able to construct the elevator and with a little bit of experimenting we soon had a fully functioning robotic elevator.
Matt also sent us a Bathurst Race Track mat for the Tami that he had designed. The mat came complete with builder and program notes. The program that he has created enables the robot car to follow the black line around the track using the infrared sensors. What we liked about Matt’s notes was that they contained extension activities that build upon the children’s prior learning and prompted students with questions such as “What modifications would you make to the program to improve efficiency of speed?”.  Challenging students to think and solve problems in a real world context is what the Robo Tami kits are all about.
