Tadpole Educational

Standard Educational Tadpole


Tadpole Educational:

The Tadpole Educational is identical to the color version of this great little bot. The only difference is the fact that the educational version comes only in clear. Also, the acrylic itself is an itty-bitty bit thinner than the color version. Beyond that, all accessories, information and tutorials will work with either platform.

The educational version is available as a bulk purchase. If you are interested in more than just a couple, please visit the educators page for more information on how to contact us.

Finally, the educational version is available with bump switches and as a Spurt bot and can even come with the micro controllers pre-programmed. Perfect if you are doing a Saturday-morning class at the local children's museum.
