|Ozobot Bit Starter Pack – SKU 5734607|
The Ozobot works with or without the app, however, downloading the app gives the future programmer more options to learn. We started to learn how to Ozobot worked by just simply turning him on and setting him on the play board. Without the app connected, the Ozobot will move around the board on the black lines and do various tricks as he passes over the colors.
We then downloaded the app and connected our Ozobot. We were able to name our little Ozobot and play a couple games with him. One of the games that you can play is called Ozolaunch. This is a game of skill where you control the Ozobot and launch him from planet (colored circle) to planet in as few shots as possible. Both of our kids were competing to see who could do it in the least amount of time. Of course our son was the best at this!
We put together a short video to walk anyone through some basics of usage from turning him on, to using the play board, to calibration and play! I know there will be more videos as we learn more and are able to work through the coding process together. Yes, together! This mom is just as excited to learn more coding and help my kiddo build his STEM skills. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math and products like this Ozobot encourage kids to develop skills in these areas. Best Buy carries STEM products ranging from basic learning games to advanced toys that are designed to stimulate a child’s mind in these STEM areas which help develop logic and problem solving skills! Any parent can get behind that!
