Bee-Bot

Price: iPhone/iPad - Free

Teacher Overview

This app is based on the original Bee-Bot classroom-friendly floor robot.
 
Using the same keypad as the in school floor robot version, the aim is for pupils to solve various challenges by programming a cartoon bee to move around different levels through sequences of forwards, backwards, left and right 90 degree turns. Whereas the physical Bee-Bot requires actual floor space, the Bee-Bot app lets pupils work either individually or in a group on iPad, so it’s great for classrooms where space is an issue.
 
The app has three levels of play mode: The flower mode with 12 levels, the Sheep Herding mode with 3 levels and the Egg collecting mode with 3 levels. Each level has a scoring system of up to 3 stars depending on how successful you are in solving the problem in the time given.
 
This is a great app to teach basic level entry coding.
