In 1/2 we have been working hard to program our Bee bots in longer programs to go around obstacles. Children have worked in their home teams of 4 to go around one obstacle successfully. Once this has been completed, more obstacles are added to make the program more complex. The aim of the exercise has been to use longer programs rather than adding a few steps, clearing and then starting again. Children have loved creating their obstacle courses and even though some teams have found it difficult, they have never given up and have continued in a desperate effort to get it right. The team work has also been great to watch as they have had to communicate and work together to create such long programs.

We did a mini-exploration the other day that was similar to Adventure 2. I gave each group their BeeBot and asked them to answer the following questions/problems (as many as they could, in order):

1. How far does the BeeBot move in 1 Forward step?

2. How far does the BeeBot move in 1 Reverse step?

3. How does the BeeBot move when right or left turns are programmed.

4. Can you get the BeeBot to go around the BeeBot box?
