My young daughters (9 and 11) and I have built a new robot we call "Spirit II Mars Rover" in honor of the rovers that are on Mars. The most interesting thing about this robot is its unique suspension system and how it turns, so be sure to watch the video on this robot's page: http://beatty-robotics.com/?p=525. My daughters and I have built more than ten Arduino-based robots so far, which you can see here: www.beatty-robotics.com

Good to see girls gettin' their geek on!

That's a cool toy! Any codes? :D
It looks to have an ultrasonic sensor mounted on it to decide when to stop. Maybe you could mount it on a servo and take a look around that way? Pretty big solar cells, too. How much current can those things provide?
