Coding Journeys

Which robots best fit your students’ skills and interests? These activities will help you find out!

These coding adventures help you and your students compare Bee-Bot, Blue-Bot, and Pro-Bot.
The activities, based on different types of journeys, use Terrapin’s free Online Emulators that run in a browser window.

Students practice coding as they learn to use the special features of Bee-Bots, Blue-Bots, and Pro-Bots.
Their coding skills will develop as they progress from simple to more complex challenges.

In each section, students can start with simple moves and turns, then expand to using angles and loops. Students will experience the wide range of these robots’ capabilities. Some of the challenges are quite tricky! Students can work in pairs to complete them. Have them record the commands they used.

Tips and lesson ideas are at the right side of each mat. Students can save their completed projects (or works-in-progress) using the ‘Save’ button. The code is saved in the Downloads folder of the computer.
