We report a kit for a mobile microrobot for a robotics seminar that teaches young people about robotics technology. The kit consists of 2 motors, a body and 2 tires. The transmission system directly transmits torque from the motor to the wheel without gears, and the shaft of wheels has sufficient clearance from the body to neglect errors in assembly. The design concept 1) easy construction, 2) easy architectural expansion, and 3) enjoyable use. We also discuss robotic seminars held in 2002.
