Building robots is a great way to learn about electronics and code, whether you're 6 or 60 years old. These days, you can find awesome robot kits that give you the parts and instructions to build everything from a tank that can use object recognition to an arm that can pick things up to a robotic crab that hobbles along on its legs.
But building the robot, a process that usually only takes a few hours is just the beginning of the fun. Once your kit is complete, you can either move your robot manually or, better yet, program it to act autonomously. If you or your child haven't coded before, don't worry: many of these robots even come with tutorials to walk you through the process.
