Bee-Bot Bop

Have you ever talked to a robot before?

Students will "bee" given the chance to explore the differences between giving instructions to a human vs. a robot by coding a virtual bee bot to complete a series of challenges.

In this workshop, students will be introduced to the differences between robots and humans as we explore the algorithms required to get a virtual bee bot from one place to another. This introduction to coding will have students writing directional algorithms using a coding language consisting of forwards, backwards, left, and right arrows.
