Create is preassembled and ready to use right out of the box. Beginners can observe the robot's behavior in any of the 10 demonstration modes or program the robot by downloading scripts with any basic terminal program.
Advanced users can write custom software using a variety of methods that take advantage of the robot's "streaming sensor data" mode for more control of the robot. And highly advanced users can write programs for completely autonomous behavior.
Create is just one part of iRobot's commitment to support Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education. iRobot has created the Starter Program for the Advancement of Robotics Knowledge (SPARK) portal to get kids, teachers and parents excited about robotics.
