Welcome to the Bee-Bot web site! 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!
Sturdy construction and colorful design entice children to put Bee-Bot through its paces. Directional keys are used to enter up to 40 commands which send Bee-Bot forward, back, left, and right. Pressing the green GO button starts Bee-Bot on its way. Bee-Bot blinks and beeps at the conclusion of each command to allow children to follow Bee-Bot through the program they have entered and then confirms its completion with lights and sound. Children want to use Bee-Bot over and over and are inspired to enter ever more creative and complex command sequences.
Bee-Bot moves in 6” steps and 90º turns. Compact size and durable materials make Bee-Bot child- and classroom-friendly. Bee-Bot is equally adaptable to home and school environments and boosts enthusiasm for experimentation and learning wherever it is used. Bee-Bot is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery. Recharging is done via a standard USB recharger or USB computer port. A USB recharger cable comes with each Bee-Bot.
A full line of Bee-Bot materials are available to enhance teaching and learning with Bee-Bot in the classroom. This broad range of products includes curriculum, accessories, and mats. We also offer bundles that combine Bee-Bots and related products to make it easy and economical for schools to bring these exciting new products into their classrooms.
Pro-Bot is Bee-Bot's big brother and takes skills learned and honed with Bee-Bot to the next level. A turtle robot, cleverly disguised as a race car, Pro-Bot has Logo on board and offers students an enticing, engaging, and hands-on experience with Logo programming as well as robotic controls. Pro-Bot commands are entered via a set of arrow and number keys mounted on the back. Plan a route for Pro-Bot and press the corresponding keypad controls to specify distances and angles. Press the GO button and send Pro-Bot on its way. Incorporate touch, sound, and light sensors into your programs and develop subprocedures that can be used again and again.
