This robot is easy to put together and you can program it using the MakeCode block based coding platform so that even the little ones can make robot friends.

For this build we will be connecting two motors so that the robot can move, a sonar sensor so that the robot can see, and a speaker so that your robot can make noises. The Crickit platform leaves many more things that can be added like other sensors, servos, NeoPixels, and more.
