1. BUILD GUIDE

This online build guide has loads more detail, and videos to show you exactly how to build your Marty.

Skip this if your Marty is already built!

2. WIFI SETUP

There are two ways to connect to Marty - connecting him to your WiFI network, or using direct connect to control him without external WiFi.

If you got an assembled education set, your Martys should already be set up!

3. CALIBRATE

Walking is tricky. Make sure your Marty's joints are in alignment to get the best balance possible!

You can skip this if you bought an assembled Marty

What Next?

Once you have an assembled and calibrated Marty you can control over WiFi, you're ready to get onto the really fun stuff!

If you ever need to change Marty to a different WiFi network, have a look again at the WiFi instructions. Normally though, once your Marty is connected to your WiFi network, you won't need to go near the WiFi settings again!

Have a look at the Play section to see how you can remote control your Marty, then...

Head across to the Using Marty section to get started programming and expanding your Marty, and check out the activities below.
