Junior – educational complex for teaching robotics

Building robots requires an understanding of cause and effect relationships, mathematical thinking, an understanding of how things happen in the real world. Soon, robotics education will become widespread, its prospects are enormous. In order to prepare children for robotics education, Avrora Robotics has developed Junior.

Junior is a small, (1: 8) programmable twin of a real car.
For advanced users, it is a platform for testing their own research projects in any scientific field.

The project is focused on physics and technology schools, universities, technology parks, quantoriums, and other centers of technical creativity.
