Blue-Bot Swarm

Introducing the Blue-Bot Swarm

- a Bluetooth Programmable Robot Class Pack

You can program Blue-Bot with a wide range of tablets, a PC, Mac, or our very own TacTile Reader. The tablet app features a host of programming challenges and problems for children to solve by constructing the correct program.

Blue-Bot Swarm is a set of 6 Blue-Bots and also includes a docking station, allowing you to charge 6 Blue-Bots at the same time so you don't need to worry about storage or batteries, just pop Blue-Bot back on the dock and it'll charge ready for its next adventure!

Blue-Bot can now interact with another Bee-Bot or Blue-Bot and say "hello" or students can record their own message. Students can also record audio to play back when each button is pressed (e.g. a different sound for forward and a different sound for backward), making it more accessible to all students, including those with auditory or visual processing needs.

Blue-Bot is well suited to supporting a number of aspects of computing. It can be used to help pupils:

  • Understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital devices, and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions
  • Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
  • Use sequence, selection and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output. Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
