Transcript of Bee-Bot
The Bee-Bot has a simple and child friendly layout, a perfect starting point for teaching control, directional language and programming to young children.
• Robust and small design
• Clear and bright buttons
• Memory of up to 40 steps
• No confusing degrees to program
• Sounds and flashing eyes confirm your instructions
• Fantastic cross-curricular resources also available
• Moves accurately in 15cm steps at a time and turns in 90°
RECHARGEABLE! Supplied with a USB lead, Bee-Bot can either be recharged via your computer or a wall socket with a USB mains adaptor.
To demonstrate how the Bee bot works we videoed the programming method, sending the Bee-bot across the map to the Post Office.
The bee-bot can be used in all areas of the curriculum, often using cross curricular links.
- ICT: will include programming, for which it is a perfect resource for children of all ages.
-Maths: can be used as counting, working out a route, directions, angles.
-English: using a route for instructions and then writing an instructional text.
-DT; Designing and making a Bee-Bot map
Available as an app
Available for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®.
The new Bee-Bot App from TTS Group has been developed based on our well-loved, award-winning Bee-Bot floor robot. The app makes use of Bee-Bot's keypad functionality and enables children to improve their skills in directional language and programming through sequences of forwards, backwards, left and right 90 degree turns.
The app has been developed with 12 levels encouraging progression. Each level is timed and the faster it is completed the more stars you get! The levels are set in an engaging garden scenario and will appeal from age 4 upwards.
There are different resources that can be used with the Bee-Bot to extend the children's learning. Directional cards can be used to introduce children to the use of the Bee-Bot. A grid map can be used so that the children can use this to direct the Bee-Bot to squares on the grid.
Pro-Bot is Bee-Bots 'big brother' this can be used in ks2 as it is more advanced than Bee-Bot.
Arrow keys can be combined with the number buttons with distances entered for movement and degrees entered for turns.
Pro-Bot can hold a felt-tip pen so it can draw as it moves.
This can be differentiated for each year group by using different bots and more advanced activities such as puzzle routes, decision-making and instructional texts.
