Problem-Solving with Bee-Bot includes a teacher manual with instructions and objectives and a CD with 150 student challenges. Challenges are self-contained on one page to be easily printed and distributed to students. Each challenge is self-contained with its goal and instructions. Students solve the challenge they are presented and then test their solution with Bee-Bot. Challenges are organized by type and level of difficulty, so teachers can match challenges to student experience and ability. Challenges that emphasize mapping, graphing, predicting, and sequencing are included along with a series of challenges that present increasingly complex Bee-Bot routes.
Problem-Solving with Bee-Bot was developed by Lester Carr, a 40-year public school veteran, who drew on broad experience introducing technology into the classroom to develop Problem-Solving with Bee-Bot. Bee-Bot's simplicity and ease and use were an inspiration to develop challenges that put the motivation, excitement, and learning potential of robot technology into the hands of elementary school students.
