Meet Bee-Bot!

Bee-Bot is an exciting new robot designed for use by young children. This colorful, easy-to-operate, and friendly little robot is a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, and just having fun!

 

Tell Bee-Bot to move forward and back and turn left and right by pressing the arrow keys.  Then press GO to send Bee-Bot on its way.  Bee-Bot stops, beeps, and blinks after each step so you can follow along as Bee-Bot executes your program.  Bee-Bot can remember up to 40 commands and so encourages increasingly sophisticated plans and programs.  Children love to teach Bee-Bot how to go from place to place and learn to plan, count, and tell left from right as they do.
