Bee-Bots Welcomed in Japan

Japanese second-graders learn to code with Bee-Bot

One of the great things about Bee-Bots and other Terrapin robots is their ability to bridge cultures and languages to inspire learning.  Bee-Bots were recently demonstrated in an elementary school in Toda-City, Japan where they were received with much enthusiasm and excitement by students and teachers alike.

Second graders learned basic coding by planning a route, executing it, and then recording it. Eventually, through practice, they were able to write the code first, input the commands, and watch with delight as Bee-Bot followed the path they planned.
