Blue-Bot is the latest version of the popular Bee-Bot robot, which makes it fun and exciting for students to learn and experience coding and develop their reasoning skills. Blue-Bot also has a Bluetooth connection and can be programmed remotely as well, introduing a new concept into the robotic and coding experience. Program Blue-Bot with the buttons on the back, just like Bee-Bot. Then connect Blue-Bot via Bluetooth to a TacTile Reader or PC or tablet and program Blue-Bot remotely from your device!
Command Cards show images of Blue-Bot's command buttons with each card representing one command. Lay the cards out as you press Blue-Bot's buttons for a record of the program. Or lay out the cards to create a program and then enter it into Blue-Bot to see if Blue-Bot does what you expect. Cards are also the length of a Blue-Bot step and may be used to measure Blue-Bot distances and routes. Command Cards may also be used to create games to challenge young learners. A deck of Command Cards comes free when you purchase Blue-Bot for the holidays!
The TacTile Reader is a special device that uses "tiles" to program and control Blue-Bot remotely providing a hands-on introduction to remote control. Press the connect button to pair Blue-Bot with the TacTile Reader. Then place individual tiles, each representing a Blue-Bot command, sequentially on the TacTile Reader. Press the GO button and watch Blue-Bot move step-by-step through the program while the TacTile Reader lights up each command as Blue-Bot performs it. Want to change the program? Just switch the order of the tiles and press GO again. The TacTile Reader holds up to 10 tiles, allowing a program up to 10 steps long. The TacTile Reader combines the excitement of Blue-Bot with a concrete, hands-on immersion in coding.
Terrapin Logo is the venerable computer programming language developed to teach students to write their own programs and is well-known for its "turtle" which students move around the computer screen Terrapin Logo has now been extended to control Blue-Bot as well which means Logo programs can move Blue-Bot along with the screen turtle.
