Overview

Botley the Coding robot teaches kids the core concepts and fundamental applications of coding without the need for a screen or app. Armed with a hands-on remote control, kids tackle hands-on coding challenges that task Botley with navigating obstacles, moving in patterns, or completing simple tasks. Once they've mastered the beginning controls, kids can build their own tests for Botley with the blocks, barriers, and other obstacles included in the activity set. Though kids are in control, Botley comes with his own tricks, features include advanced collision detection, looping commands, and if/then/else programming logic that helps the little robot plan ahead for potential Roadblocks. Program Botley with up to 80 steps in programming mode, or turn on black-line-following mode and draw a path for bottle to travel. It's an interactive introduction to step-by-step coding!
