Ozobot educational robot
We have gathered some educational resources on our blog.
No, but you can program your Ozobot with OzoBlockly, Google's equivalent to Scratch.
Ozobot can go for 90min on single charge. It takes 30-40min to fully chareg Ozobot. Not bad!
No, you can use other markers provided that they can draw 6mm thick lines. The colours that the Ozobot can recognise are blue, red, green and black. You also have to be careful, the coloured lines can't be too dark or too light!
Ozobot is not waterproof. Please do not put robots in your mouth and never put them in liquids. Ozobot is an electronic product and not moisture resistant.
Calibration is very important. As soon as you want to change the background or program the robot using a digital display, it has to be calibrated. Calibration adapts the optical bit sensors to the surface and the light environment. A detailed guide for calibrating Ozobot is enclosed.
Ozobot is very small. A little dust, grease or crumbs can cause problems when driving. To clean Ozobot, simply follow these steps: take a clean sheet of white paper. Gently rub Ozobot back and forth over the paper. The wheels are clean again
1)Make sure the lines are wide enough. 2)Check the Ozobot calibration.
Teacher Devices- Ozobot Classroom supports computers running the Google Chrome browser, including:
- Chrome OS with Chrome 56+
- Mac OS X 10.10+ with Chrome 56+
- Windows 10 with Chrome 70+
Student Devices - For coding with OzoBlockly, students can use computers or tablets.
For using OzoBlockly from student computers (including Chromebooks), the following technology works best:
- All modern browsers
- iPad 3 and newer
- Android tablets
To use OzoBlockly with the Evo app, we recommend student tablets with these specifications or higher:
- iOS 7.0, 1GB RAM (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch).
- Android 6.0, 2GB rAM
- Bluetooth 4.0
To turn off your Ozobot, simply press the button for 3s.
The line tracking sensor will pick up the line and then send the information to the robot. The robot will follow the line.
The ozobot Evo has 6 more LEDs, a proximity sensor and a speaker. The 2 can be coded online through Ozoblocky or by drawing but an application is available and program it, drive it and interact with friends.
