Transform your Strawbees projects into interactive robots! Using electronic building pieces, you can program them to life them with Quirkbot.Learn creative coding and building with the Quirkbot! Connect to the computer, code, and upload a program to tell it to move, blink or both! Make a walker, a blinking star, or a pig shake in fear when it senses darkness. The Quirkbot has a rechargeable battery and can be removed from the computer to let your project come alive in the real world.
You can learn how to program in three different ways: ﬂow, block, and C++ text designed for all levels of experience.
The Strawbees CODE app works offline on Windows & MacOS and directly from the browser on Chromebooks.
