Living in an evolving digital world, we know “screen time” is a daily reality. Smart Toys are an incredible way to stimulate kids minds and open them up to the wonders of technology. Why not teach our kids to be not just the users of technology, but to be the makers of it? Parents and teachers can help make learning fun for kids of all ages with their own personal robot, an adorable, yet educational, learning toy. Ozobot Bit, the tiny robot connects with your child’s ever evolving imagination - building confidence through competitive play and interactive games.
Ozobot Bit is a
powerful tiny robot that gamifies STEM and computer science learning through a
collection of game based activities and digital apps. Its easy-to-understand
color code language makes Ozobot the perfect choice for introducing young minds
to concepts that are vital to their success in the 21st century.
Bit takes the award-winning Ozobot robot to a whole new level of programming by
giving users the power to fully control movement and behavior using its custom
block-based programming editor, OzoBlockly (www.ozoblockly.com).
Powered by Google’s
Blockly, OzoBlockly will feel very intuitive to the users of Scratch,
Hopscotch, App Inventor, Tynker or Tickle App. Block-based programming is a virtual
version of brick building toys. Assemble bricks of commands to build a program.
This simplified visual programming language enables children to learn
programming while learning how to think creatively, reason logically and work
OzoBlockly offers five
modes from Novice with icon-based blocks to Master with loops, logic and other
advanced programming concepts. Bit has something for everyone!
The editor also
provides the ability to create, save and load programs and games and easily
share them with classmates, friends and the community.
loading using light communication. No need for cables or Bluetooth - you can
load your commands onto the robot through flashing lights!
interactive reference guide, examples and challenges to get you started.
preview mode (coming soon). See your block-based program transform into
works in most modern web browsers running on PCs, Mac OS X, Windows and Linux
and iOS and Android tablets.
Ozobot is an essential
tool to break the “difficult/boring” stigma associated with learning computer
science. Tiny and power-packed with innovative programming features, Ozobot
empowers children to socially play and create, while learning valuable life skills.
Programming is not
just for geeks, it’s for everyone. When your child learns to write, it’s not
necessarily to become an author, it’s to be able to communicate. Learning how
to program is learning the language of today’s tech world. It is an essential
tool to build their confidence and prepare them to lead tomorrow’s businesses
whether in medicine, engineering, arts, farming or manufacturing!
Ozobot offers free STEM/STREAM lesson
plans and workshops (www.ozobot.com), providing teachers and parents a cutting
edge educational tool that helps kids learn while playing. Download the apps
and build custom maps, challenge friends to games of luck & strategy, and
then program your Ozobot to dance or play your very own custom game!
Tiny and Power-Packed
over an inch in diameter and height, Ozobot is one of the world's most compact
smart robots of its kind.
Ozobot uses twin
micro-motors and a friction drivetrain designed to deliver a remarkably quiet
and precise movement. The sensor array on the bottom of the robot allows it to
scan its environment. Ozobot Bit can see colors, follow lines and detect
intersections. And it does it as flawlessly on shapes you draw with regular
markers on a piece of paper as it does on the digital screen of your tablet.
As Ozobot Bit
navigates its environment, plays games and reads codes, the LEDs on its main
board always provide colorful feedback. Ozobot loves to keep you engaged by
communicating back to you using messages with cryptic blinks.
Ozobot Bit’s built-in
LiPo battery is quickly rechargeable via a micro-USB port and delivers over an
hour of continuous action on a single charge.
