Code your robots and machines to interact with the surrounding!

Introduce robotics training for kids, with Blix Boffin your kid’s coding buddy. We all know the importance of learning to code. Coding gives a new perspective to problem-solving and develops skills that are essential in the 21st century. But to learn to code, sitting in front of the computer the whole day is no fun at all.
Blix Boffin, one of the best robotics courses for kids let your child create and build with their hands, which improves dexterity and confidence when interacting with actual machines and objects in our daily lives. Also, this robotics for kids online course helps build your child’s confidence to solve real-life problems.
So, we at Blix with our deep experience are producing world-class toys and developing the Blix Boffin ecosystem. These robotics classes for kids combine construction activities and coding to help one become an innovator in the true sense.
Blix Boffin is developed around the Arduino Nano microcontroller that adds brain and computing power to our already existing Blix Robotics products. Blix Boffin also comes with peripheral boards which act as inputs and outputs to the mainboard and they are the medium through which the Blix parts can interact with the environment.

Boffin II kit will have additional input-output devices like a servo motor, light sensor, ultrasonic sensor, IR sensor, and limit switch to make many more amazing machines and systems.

What Parents say

testimonial quote

I can’t remember how I found Blix on an Instagram page and today my child is completely loving it. I, as a mother who didn’t help him in science, robotics, or coding. But, Blix is doing really really good to him. Now, he is doing the second module with blix and he has stopped playing games on iPad or PS. I didn’t have to stop him, I just shifted him towards Blix

Burhanuddin has gone through various free sessions of different coding classes but it never struck me that this is what I want him to do. But when I came across Blix I found that it is a hands-on experience. The child is actually doing something! Plus it is building his knowledge. I researched Blix on the internet and I decided that this is something I will give my child as a gift.

testimonial quote

When I went through the courses of Blix, Akshit was really keen on learning robotics, AI, and ML. This propelled me to get in touch with you and when I received the Kit, I was expecting it to be a normal online available robotics kit but it was a well-designed kit with the construction set. Then my child started the live sessions and followed every challenge to build the robots. He enjoyed making line followers and many more amazing machines.

testimonial quote

We found it really interesting to learn with Blix. I, myself love electronics and wanted to introduce it to my child. I planned to teach it with different sets to my child but I couldn’t do it. But, with Blix, it was much easier to introduce. When the live classes started, my child got more excited and interested in learning about electronics.

FAQs

Blix Boffin is a robotics course for kids between the age of 6 to 16. It is one of the more advanced courses by Blix in which kids learn to Code their robots and machines to interact with their surroundings. It encompasses 16 lessons each 1 hour long in which kids will build 16 robots with the help of a very well-structured Blix Robotics Boffin tool kit and a manual under the guidance of an expert STEAM trainer.

The Blix Boffin course comprises 16 lessons that will teach kids various concepts of robotics in an easy-to-understand and exciting manner. The concepts that they will learn are Programming, Microcontroller- Arduino Nano, System Design, Industrial Application of Robots, IR Sensor, Limit Switch, and Input-compute-output.

In today’s day and age with the rise in technology and rise in jobs in the STEAM industry incorporating STEAM into their regular curriculum is what more and more institutions are looking up to. We are here to make the process easier for you by helping you include the Blix Boffin or any other Blix course in your curriculum. We will provide Robotics materials, weekly STEAM lectures for standards 1 to 8, the ‘Train the Trainer’ program available for school faculty, external trainers, and more. Find out more at Blix for Schools.

This is the time kids can start implementing what they learned from the course into actual action. One Blix Boffin tool kit opens up possibilities to create more than 1000 combinations! Kids are now free to open all their gateways to imagination and innovation and create wonders of their own with the help of everything they have learned.

Take a sigh of relief here as you won’t have to buy a whole new Blix Boffin tool kit for just a few tools. All you have to do is head to Blix Shop and order only the specific tools that your child needs. Your child will eventually be able to create their own unique and custom kit for their unique creations.

The child should have completed Phase I before starting Boffin Phase II.
