Emma Norling has also written a really great blog post with detailed instructions on how to build the Tiny 4WD robot using Explorer pHAT and a Pi Zero.

Brian Corteil, the designer, has provided some example code to get you up and running and some more tips on his product page.

The Explorer pHAT requires some soldering to attached the Raspberry Pi header and breakout pins.
