The United States needs to get more kids involved in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education. Fifteen percent of current job openings in the country are in the tech field, but only 16 percent of high school seniors are proficient in mathematics and interested in a STEM career.
Robots are playing an increasing role in STEM, and EZ-Robot has certainly been doing it’s part to promote STEM with its line of Revolution Robot Kits.
And that’s why Robotics Trends has partnered with EZ-Robot to give away an EZ-Robot Roli Rover Robot Kit – a $400 value.
The contest is open until June 30 at 11:59 PM ET, and all you have to do to enter is simply fill out the short form at the bottom of this page.
We’ll announce the winner no later than Wednesday, July 8, 2015.

The EZ-Robot Roli Rover Robot Platform is a customizable planetary rover styled robot platform with 13 female EZ-Bit connections for additional EZ-Bits. Much like a space exploration vehicle, this robot was designed to be a workhorse and move across different surfaces.
With a 7.4v LiPo battery powering 2 motors, this robot platform has enough torque to tackle tough terrain. The wheels and treads are also adjustable in height which modifies the ground clearance. The included EZ-Robot EZ-B v4 Camera adds vision tracking capabilities. The compact grippers are powered by strong metal geared servo motors.
The EZ-B v4 is not only the brain of your EZ-Robot, it is also the World’s most powerful and compact robot brain. The EZ-B v4 scales for beginner and advanced users. The EZ-B is two PCB’s sandwiched together in a compact 2×2 inch package. For advanced users, the EZ-B may be removed from its casing and mounted directly in your custom robot.
Your EZ-Robot is controlled by the world’s easiest, most powerful and scalable robot software. EZ-Builder takes a productive and unique approach to programming your robot. Simply add behaviors such as Camera Tracking, Speech Recognition, Wii Controller, GPS, GAIT Positioning, and hundreds more.
Includes digital heavy duty 15 kg/cm servo motors. The metal gear and ball bearing internals will withstand a high load. These servos were designed with enough strength to enable your robots to walk, move or lift.
