In 1980, OWI Incorporated, was looking for a way to expand its consumer product lines and bring its extensive technology background to the educational community. RobotiKits™ and OWIKits® were developed to affordably introduce students to robotics technology.

The kits are available in five difficultly levels—ranging from beginners with no experience up to advanced circuit board soldering and mechanical assembly—challenging builders from grade school to adult. In conjunction with educators, OWI Inc. has developed a fully structured teaching curriculum with modules tailored to the kit’s unique electronic and mechanical features.
