We describe our approach to enabling hands-on experiential robotics for all ages through the introduction of a robot programming workbook and robot test-bed. We describe the vision and motivation for the project, and then the details of the robot hardware, software, and the accompanying workbook and textbook materials. Together, these resources are aimed at providing free, detailed, and readily accessible materials to K-12 and university educators and students for direct immersion in hands-on robotics.
