Coding resources in schools for the digital class
The Bee-Bot is an exciting educational floor robot for use by young children. It is a good starting point for teaching control, directional language and programming.
It is a robot which moves accurately in 15cm steps and turns in 90 degree increments. These robots can be used with themed mats which are already available in schools and with transparent mats which allow teachers to create any mat they like.
On the all-in-one devices, a Bee-Bot software is also available.
Pro-Bot is a turtle robot with Logo on board. Like a car, Pro-Bot can move forward and back and turn left and right. It has a built-in mechanism that allows it to draw as it goes. Capability to repeat and follow a series of commands, including a main program and sub-programs, makes Pro-Bot a hands-on responsive tool for teaching and learning programming. Built-in touch, light and sound sensors give Pro-Bot the ability to respond to its environment, making it a great platform for teaching the basics of robotics.
