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

They are build with sturdy construction and colorful design 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. 

Students in Mrs. Grissom’s class were manipulating codes wtih the Bee Bots to locate 2 and 3 digit numbers based on place value concepts.  Great learning experience for our students!
