Bee-Bot: the educational robot that does exactly what it’s told
The Bee-Bot is cheerful, round and very good fun, but it does much more than simply make people smile – it allows children from the age of 4 to get to grips with the rudiments of robotics and with the characteristics of a robot.
How come my robot can move forward by itself? What do I have to do to make it go where I want it to?
Not only is the Bee-Bot good fun, it’s also child’s play to use! There are directional keys on the top of its back – left, right, up, down – and an OK button to validate. Bee-Bot can memorise up to 200 steps, thus enabling the creation of more complex programs.
Children simply have to visualise the journey they want their Bee-Bot to take on a mat divided up into squares, then program the robot by pressing the right arrows.
When they press OK, the Bee-Bot sets off allowing them to check they’ve not made any mistakes.
This educational robot can also record sounds and link them with a specific button, that will trigger the sound when pressed.

A multitude of games for a nursery or primary school robot
The Bee-Bot can be completed with a set of educational materials, consisting of various mats for taking different journeys and an educational booklet.
This robot, ideal for nursery and primary schools, can therefore accompany children as their knowledge of mathematics, geography, spelling and vocabulary progresses.
It helps nursery pupils develop their spatial awareness by imagining the best route for their Bee-Bot. Later, Bee-Bot will accompany them as they discover different animals, additions and subtractions, and even a country’s geography.

The biggest difference is the addition of a Bluetooth module on the Blue-Bot robots. Thanks to the Bluetooth module, young users can program and control their robot with a tablet, a smartphone or the Blue-Bot programming bar !
No, the Bee-Bot robot does not have any Bluetooth chip, so the only way to control it is with the buttons on its back.
The two steps below explain how to test your robot for power problems. 1) Reinitialize the robot: Open the battery compartment by loosening the screw. The screw is triangular and is located on the square plate at the bottom of the robot. Remove the battery and reinsert it to reinitialize your Bee-Bot / Blue-Bot. If that does not help, continue with point 2. 2) Test with a different battery: Insert a working battery to see if the problem is related to the battery or the robot

Smaller than I expected, they have an appealing design and are easily handled by children. I still could not test the ease of use. Based on a visual evaluation, the bee-bots fully satisfied me.
