MITI-Bee-Bots & Pro-Bots:Coding for Early Childhood & Elementary Classrooms

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Discover and learn the features and functions of the Bee Bot and Pro Bot devices; learn about classroom applications and how to integrate the devices into curriculum; get tips and suggestions on classroom management and logistics from an educator using them; and enjoy time to explore strategies and come up with a specific classroom application for your class with peers and colleagues. Join us for a fun-filled opportunity to explore, play, and learn how to bring STEM to your classroom. Bee-Bot is a small, roundish, yellow and black robot designed for use by young children. Directional keys are used to enter up to 40 commands that send Bee-Bot forward, back, left, and right. Pressing the green GO button starts Bee-Bot on its way. Pro-Bot is Bee-Bot's big brother and takes skills learned and honed with Bee-Bot to the next level. Cleverly disguised as a race car, Pro-Bot has Logo programming language on board and offers students an enticing, engaging, and hands-on experience with Logo, as well as robotic controls. Pro-Bot commands are entered via a set of arrow and number keys mounted on the back. Pro-Bot can also be used in the simpler "Bee-Bot" mode. The registration fee for this MITI workshop includes the cost of the workshop AND the device(s). The specific Robot Duo model selected and exact price will be posted in October on the conference website at www.nhcmtc.org.
