You Should Be Dancing....

P2s are continuing to work with Bee Bots trying to get them to move in a synchronised way... almost like dancing! They need to plan their routines carefully, using appropriate terms, such as 'forward' rather than 'that way' and then input their commands accurately, otherwise the Bee Bots might stand on each other's feet!

One of our Bee Bots has now been named Barry after the main character in the film Bee Movie. Well done to Max for being the first to work out the answer.

It was nice to hear from Nicole Sprainger who runs the blog Bee Bots Down Under It looks like they're doing some really exciting things in schools there.

Hey Cool stuff!
The timing for using the BeeBots couldn't be better. I have just seen the B movie myself. (Gerry Seinfeld should stick to stand up in my opinion!)
I used to run a group doing the lego robotics and we had the annual Robocup competition which had a dance element. It was great to get the robot to dance to the music. I still have a routine for Vanessa Amorosi's "Absolutely"
Good Luck!
