Back to School with 'Bots!
Add some excitement to the new school year by introducing robots into the classroom. Robots boost student enthusiasm while developing planning, estimation, counting, and critical thinking skills. Terrapin has Bee-Bots, Pro-Bots, and accessories ready to go.
Bee-Bot is targeted at K-2 students. While easy to understand and simple to operate, Bee-Bot develops complex reasoning capabilities. Bee-Bot promotes STEM concepts and motivates study of other subjects.
Pro-Bot is Bee-Bot's "big brother," targeted at students in 3rd grade and up. Pro-Bot is ideal to introduce as students start studying angles. With sensors, sub-procedures, and drawing capability, Pro-Bot provides immersion in robotics concepts as well as a motivating, hands-on experience in programming.
Terrapin has the full line of Bee-Bot and Pro-Bot products. Contact Terrapin to learn how robots can add excitement and boost learning in your classroom!
