[05/13/2019] Kitties at SEA!

After weeks and weeks (and weeks) of robot Engineering and production, we did it! Our largest robotics workshop ever - 90 robots for the Robbinsdale School of Engineering and Art! We are so grateful for the chance to bring our robots to SEA, and we loved watching the students there really get into coding in Python! Special thanks to the 7 Dreams Foundation for providing the grant to SEA so they could bring our workshop in.

Just get a robot kit?

Did you just get a Code Kitty robotics kit, and aren't sure where to start? Your story with Code Kitty starts here. Don't worry, we'll walk you through everything.

Build-a-Kitty

Check out our Build page for step-by-step instructions to assemble your new robot. We walk you through it, and you'll be purrfect in no time!

Start learning Python

If you just finished building your robot, or took one of our workshops but now want a refresher, you can go through our online Python coding tutorial.

Python Powered Kitty

Now that you've learned Python, it's time to bring your robot to life! Get started with CircuitPython and explore the world of robotics!

Your code unleashed

In the final part of our workshop, learn how to store code on your robot so that it runs even when the robot is not connected to your computer.

What's that function?

We have included our own Python library on your robot to make coding easier. Check out our Function Reference sheet for a complete list of functions.

Print Your Own

We believe in sharing, so we have all of our designs on Thingiverse! This way you can 3D print your own Kitty or turn it into something new! Kitty-Tank, anyone?

Code your Kitty in Chrome

All you need is a computer (or Chromebook) running Chrome browser to code your Kitty. Just install the Text and Beagleterm apps, then click here.

Reset your code

Did you replace the code on your robot with something else, and want to start over? Just replace the .py and .wav files on your robot with these!
