Are Your Bee-Bots Ready for Halloween?

As your students plan their Halloween costumes, why not have them dress up the Bee-Bots, too?

Students can decorate white "Bee-signer" jackets with markers, decals, stickers, hats, feathers, and much more. The jacket snaps over Bee-Bot, giving it a fun, festive look as it travels on its way.

"Bee-signer" Jackets come in a pack of 4 for just $19.95 and shipping is the same for up to 4 sets. Order them today so they arrive in time for Halloween!  Read more and order now.

Check out these other Bee-Bot accessories: Pusher Jackets and Pen Holder Jackets.

Just for fun: What do you get when you cross a Bee-Bot with a pumpkin? A Bee-Kin! See how these Massachusetts teachers turned a pumpkin into a Bee-Bot!

Bee-Bot Quick Start Sheet (PDF)

Here's a handy Bee-Bot Quick Start Sheet to post in your classroom. It reminds students what to do on "Bee-Bot Days," and can help if you have a substitute covering your class.

Periodically review the content with your students so they remember how to handle Bee-Bot safely.


We want to hear from you!

We are always looking for feedback on our products and suggestions for new content and features. For example:
