Today in Year One we learned how to use BeeBots. We had a go at moving like a BeeBot and following a series of commands called an algorithm. It sounds far more complicated than it really is – the trickiest part was knowing our left from right!
We created our own maps featuring London landmarks and moved a toy car around the map using the same commands as a Bee Bot would. Next, we created our own algorithms using symbols for our friends to try out. Lots of us made mistakes at first but we worked really hard to debug the code and fix the problem.
Finally we got the BeeBots out. Once we felt confident, we took on the challenge of commanding the BeeBot to move around the room without touching any of the obstacles.
