Welcome to the Summer 2015 issue of Turtle Talk, the Terrapin newsletter.
Blue-Bot is coming soon!
Blue-Bot has Bluetooth!
Blue-Bot, the highly anticipated addition to the Bee-Bot family debuts at ISTE and will be available for shipment in July.
Blue-Bot operates just like Bee-Bot using on-board command keys. But Blue-Bot's bluetooth connection means it can also be programmed with PCs and iOS and Android devices. Bluetooth programming adds repeating and 45˚ turns to Blue-Bot's bag of tricks.
Bee-Bot and Blue-Bot share the same form factor and scaling so all peripherals, included the Docking Station and mats, are cross-compatible. Add Blue-Bot to a Bee-Bot classroom and take learning and excitement to the next level!
The Butler sisters made their own Pro-Bot video tutorial
Riley and Sabrina Butler, second and fifth grade students respectively at Foundations for the Future School in Kennesaw, Georgia, were captivated by Pro-Bot at their school. After mastering Pro-Bot programming, the sisters created a video to show what they had learned, including drawing shapes and using the sensors.
Their father, Jason Butler, contributed the video to Terrapin's Customer Stories. He noted "My daughters made this tutorial video about using Pro-Bot, that they are very proud of." We suspect Dad is pretty proud too.
