Bee-Bot is programmed by students to carry out sequences of movements, to follow instructions, complete tasks or embark on adventures (like spelling a name on the Alphabet Map, or finding a shape on the shape and colour mat, or evading pirates on the Treasure Island Map). Bee-bot can accurately move in steps of 15cm, turn in 90° turns, and remembers up to 200 steps!
