Blue-Bot is a perfect resource for KS1 and KS2.
Download the app to control Blue-Bot, the latest addition to our floor robot family. The app enables you to write an algorithm, send it and then Blue-Bot will follow your instructions. There are numerous features, which make writing algorithms both fun and educational.
Use explore mode to develop algorithms:- Step by step programming. Instructions are added to the list and once happy place Blue-Bot back at the start and press go.- Drag and drop programming. Just drag your instructions into the left hand bar to save- Include repeats to make things even more fun- Program 45 degree turns.Challenge mode will add complexity into the algorithm:- Blue-Bot will add random obstacles, adding complexity to the algorithm needed- One or even two directional buttons can be removed- Random instructions can be generated, you must predict which square Blue-Bot will end up.Children can also record themselves saying a command and can assign it to a button on Blue-Bot. As the algorithm progresses, they will hear themselves giving the instructions.Note: This app can be installed in older iPads but will have limited functionality and CANNOT be used to control a Blue-Bot floor robot.
