A great way to introduce your little one to programming is with the Bee Bot robot.  This tech kit includes a friendly little Bee Bot robot and a mat for him to explore.  But Bee Bot can’t explore on his own, he needs to be told where to go and how to move.  By pushing the arrows on his back, you can make Bee Bot move forward or backward and turn to the left or right. Move this little guy from point A  to point B on the mat that comes with our tech kit or create your own obstacles by using blocks or other toys for the Bee Bot to maneuver around. They are the perfect tool to help teach sequencing, directionality, problem-solving, and are just fun to play with!

Check out a Bee Bot robot in action in the following videos:

This and all of our other tech kits are free to check out with a membership (which is also free!) and a photo ID. Come try out the Bee Bot tech kit at Do Space!
