Depending on your budget and the interest level of the participants, I would recommend the LEGO Mindstorms NXT kits, or VEX Robotics kit. Lego provides a user friendly drag and drop programming interface that's simple enough for most 10-15 year olds to figure out, and the familiarity that middle schoolers have with Legos, while VEX allows more robust platforms to be developed, and provides more capable means of building and experimenting with designs. For a middle school though, I would definitely recommend the Lego Mindstorms NXT system, hands down.

How do you make robots which can be prepared by kids?

At a hobby shop, you can find various robotics kits suitable for children. Personally, I recommend the VEX robotics kit if you think the children may be serious about robotics. It is more expensive, but the kit comes with almost everything you'll need for the entire robotics experience from building to programming.

From where to start for robotics im an mechanical engineer student?

In my experience, the best place to start learning about robotics is the VEX kits.
