Bee-Bot is a fun and friendly robot designed to be sturdy and easy to operate for young children and beginners of all ages. Children’s as young as four can earn sequencing, estimation, and problem-solving while having fun putting Bee-Bot through its paces! Use the directional keys to enter a sequence of commands directing Bee-Bot to move forward or back or to turn left or right. A handy beep and blink after each command makes it easy to follow Bee-Bot’s progress through the entire program sequence.
This kit includes three Bee-Bots so the entire family can have fun together. It contains three USB charging cords and a USB wall outlet adapter for easy charging. The entire set is secured in a plastic bin and comes in an easy-to-carry tote bag. Use the Command Cards for a screen-free coding lesson. Use the cards to plan a course for Bee-Bot, enter the commands into the robot, and see where it goes. If Bee-Bot does something unexpected, check the Command Cards to identify any mistakes and try again.
Recommended for ages 4+
