This is a reproduction of an article TechyKids Founder, Sharon Marzouk had authored for Robohub on October/3/2013 With a background in mechanical engineering and an interest in design, engineering and working with kids, I happened into robotics education – and now I’ve been happily teaching and involved for five years. I started out teaching Lego Mindstorms […]
This project has been fun and creative. It has been very entertaining, and we would recommend it!
Activity: Using the front sight sensors, Thymio can follow a hand that is placed in front of it. How to: There are many ways to accomplish hand following with the Thymio Robot. The following methods are the easiest. Put Thymio in the pre-programmed Green Mode. To Program Thymio, open up Thymio VPL or Aseba Studio on […]
Thymio is such an easy to learn platform that even tech saavy four year olds can use a computer and program the robot, and understand what they are doing! For young kids we have awesome content and ideas to get them along the way. Here is an example of some kids using Thymio in Kindergarten […]
We are excited about the recent developments that allow Thymio to integrate with MIT’s Scratch programming language. The newest version is used best with a Wireless Thymio, as there needs to be a constant and stable connection between the computer and Thymio robot. A wired Thymio can be used as well, but cannot be disconnected at any […]

This program will have Thymio draw six hexagons around a center — to make a sort of flower.
I had fun making this today! The inspiration is from the 10 year old in Paris who won that Fellowship with a Thymio II robot. I imported her project’s 3-D model into the new online software I’m creating with a collaborator in New Zealand to bring creativity and programming robots to all kids. I also […]
