The GoBox International ships quarterly instead of monthly (four total shipments). Your first delivery will include the GoPiGo3 robot kit along with the sensors you need for Missions 1, 2, and 3. The rest of the shipments will just include sensors to accompany 3 more missions each time. GoBox includes a total of 12 missions, supported by 11 sensors/actuators.
Already have the GoPiGo robot? The Missions Only product only includes 11 missions and 9 sensors. It is the option for those that already have the GoPiGo.
The missions are in a story form of step-by-step instructions that take you through the whole experience. You’ll have full access to our video library and support forums as well. The monthly sensors include the Light & Color Sensor, Loudness Sensor, Distance Sensor, Grove Buzzer, Grove LED, Grove PIR Motion Sensor, Grove Button Sensor, Grove Infrared Sensor, Infrared Remote Control, and the GoPiGo Line Follower.
