Ready for class! This Blue-Bot® Class Pack includes six programmable robots and a rechargeable docking station. Blue-Bot is a great resource to get students started learning coding and developing future-ready skills for our digital world.
- Understand what algorithms are.
- Create and debug simple programs.
- Use logical reasoning to predict the behavior of simple programs.
Blue-Bot Programmable Robots have clear shells, which enable students to see the components inside – a fun way to view one part of the process! Blue-Bot is Bluetooth enabled, which allows for multiple ways to program it. Children can use the buttons on the top of the robot for a simple, effective experience or use the TacTile Code Reader to get a tangible feel for programming that enables kids to plan out their code, send it to the robot, test, debug, and repeat!
There are also two apps available for controlling your Blue-Bot wirelessly. The Blue-Bot app enables users to code their robot using remote control functionality. Blue’s Blocs is an app complementary to the Blue-Bot, which allows for expansion of knowledge and teaching at greater depth in elementary computer science. Using a familiar block-based environment, students can program their Blue-Bot using extended functionality, which includes decision-making, numerical functions, Boolean operators, and the introduction of variables.
By seamlessly connecting the physical Blue-Bot device to the app via Bluetooth connection, students can kinesthetically embed computational concepts in their learning.
Blue-Bots can be recharged using the included USB charging cord. A fully charged robot can be used for approximately four hours of normal use. The rechargeable docking station will charge up to six robots within half a day for approximately four hours of normal use.
