Robotics has gained great popularity these past few years with the addition of engineering and STEM programs being offered in schools and libraries in the community. There are even homeschool STEM and robotics groups popping up, which is so exciting!

FREE Robotic Projects and Ideas
If you have children that love to create and invent things they will love learning about robotics. This would be a great addition to Science, or just for some fun hands-on learning in your homeschool. You could even devote an entire afternoon to robotics and make a whole unit study out of it. I also like the idea of forming your own robotics club so your kids can learn, create and challenge each other with their robots.

Here are some really fun robotics projects and ideas to help you get started:

Instructables has an entire page called Your First Robot. This includes step-by-step instructions on 15 different beginner robot projects. There are so many cute ones to choose from.

Research Parent has some really cute robot ideas. Each post has detailed instructions and even some videos of these adorable robots in action.
