Blue-Bot is a robot that can be programmed in a variety of ways providing progression for children from Key Stage one to Key Stage 2. Unlike the Bee-Bot it is controllable via Bluetooth. It provides children with a means of creating their own logical programming sequences in a fun and interesting way.
At the beginning the keys on the Blue-Bot’s back are pressed to control forward, backward, 90 degree turns, to pause and to stop. Using this approach children can build their first programs in simple logical steps. The Tactile Reader helps children further develop their programming skills by allowing them to visually create a linear programming sequence by placing cards into frame. For clarity, card sequences can be arranged either horizontally or vertically. Finally, it can also be controlled remotely by Apple, Android or Windows devices providing a wonderful practical example of programming a physical device.
The Blue-Bot comes ready to go with a rechargeable cell and USB recharging lead. Numerous other Blue-Bot resources are available, supporting its use in the classroom.
