Measuring just 2.54 cm in diameter, Ozobot is one of the smallest programmable robots in the world. Popular among teachers and children alike, it has a powerful brain that makes learning the basics of programming and coding both intuitive and fun.
Used already in over 10,000 schools, the brand keeps on reinventing itself, and has recently released a brand-new Ozobot Bit+. In this article we reveal all the new features of this educational robot and the improvements it brings.
The Ozobot Bit+ robot’s strengths
The Ozobot Bit+ educational robot can be used by children from nursery school through to the end of their secondary education. It’s ideal for learning STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), because it introduces users to programming and coding while also encouraging creativity, logic and collaborative work.
It can also be used with both paper and a screen. On paper, simply use the coloured markers that come with the kit to change your robot’s behaviour in the course of its journey. If you’d rather work with a screen, you can use OzoBlockly, a colourful Scratch type block-based editor with five levels of complexity (available online). Ozobot Bit+ is now also compatible with Arduino boards for even more potential uses!
Why is Ozobot Bit+ better?
- Rechargeable LiPo battery and 3 times more efficient
- Twice the autonomy
- Compatible with Arduino
- Ability to transfer programs directly from OzoBlockly using a USB cable and the Chrome browser
- Optical sensors for line tracking and colour coding
- Stronger polycarbonate shell
- New on/off switch to save battery power
- Improved LEDs
- Possibility of wireless battery charging
- Possibility to update the firmware using the USB connection
