Simple sequences of instructions are given to the BeeBot to 'write' numbers. These algorithms are represented by...

Bee-Bots Basics

This introduction to using the small programmable robot, the BeeBot, introduces children to creating simple programs. They learn the importance of sequences of accurate instructions, and test their sequences out using a 'fakebot' or paper-robot. Children are encouraged to debug and develop their sequences before...

From the Ground and From the Sky
