Bee-Bot online helps K-2 students learn to program using the popular Bee Bot, but in an online environment for home use.
Sturdy construction and colorful design entice children to put Bee-Bot through its paces. Directional keys are used to enter up to 40 commands which send Bee-Bot forward, back, left, and right. Pressing the green GO button starts Bee-Bot on its way. Bee-Bot blinks and beeps at the conclusion of each command to allow children to follow Bee-Bot through the program they have entered and then confirms its completion with lights and sound. Children want to use Bee-Bot over and over and are inspired to enter ever more creative and complex command sequences. Bee-Bot moves in 6" steps and 90 degree turns. Compact size and durable materials make Bee-Bot child- and classroom-friendly and boosts enthusiasm for experimentation and learning wherever it is used.
