This robot platform was developed by iRobot to ignite students’ passion for STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math) through the excitement of robots. Create 2 allows for a variety of programming methods, from beginner programmers to advanced robotics students. Users are encouraged to “hack” Create 2 using their laptop, a microcontroller or come up with their own solutions. Users can also go beyond programming and build on to the robot, attaching sensors, electronics, grippers and other cool things.
