Turtle Robots

The Logo screen turtle is a popular and well-known feature of Terrapin Logo. Many students' first programming experience is moving the Logo turtle around the computer screen and teaching it to draw colorful shapes and designs.

Terrapin also offers a line of mechanical turtle robots that bring Logo concepts off the screen and into the real world.  Each offers a fun and hands-on way for students to experience Logo concepts and motivates them to develop coding skills.

Terrapin's line of turtle robots provides a progressive challenge from the youngest students to those with developed programming skills.  When paired with Terrapin Logo, the same concepts can be reinforced on and off screen. The robots with communication capability may be connected directly to Terrapin Logo and follow the same commands as the Logo screen turtle.

Bee-Bot

Bee-Bot is a simplified Logo turtle for the youngest students. Designed for students in kindergarten through second grade, Bee-Bot may be programmed to move forward and back and turn left and right by pressing the corresponding arrow keys on its back. Press the green GO button and watch Bee-Bot follow the steps. Children are captivated by Bee-Bot and eager to send it on its way

Blue-Bot

Blue-Bot is Bee-Bot with Bluetooth connection that lets you program the robot from a tablet or PC as well as directly via the on-board keys. Use the command keys on its back to send Blue-Bot forward and back, left and right and teach sequencing, directionality, problem-solving, counting, and estimation. Take Blue-Bot to the next level by controlling it remotely with the Tactile Reader or the free app on iPads or Android tablets Windows or Mac PCs.

Pro-Bot

Pro-Bot is a sophisticated turtle robot, cleverly disguised as a race car with Logo on board.  Pro-Bot invites students into an engaging, concrete, hands-on coding experience with Logo programming as well as robotic controls which develops planning, reasoning, geometry, and math skills.  Pro-Bot commands are entered via a set of arrow and number keys mounted on the back. Plan a route and press the corresponding keypad controls. Then press GO and send Pro-Bot on its way. Pro-Bot includes subprocedures and can exchange programs with Terrapin Logo via the included USB cable.

InO-Bot

InO-Bot is the Logo turtle come to life!  Bring programming off the screen and out into the real world by creating Logo programs and watching the screen turtle and InO-Bot execute them at the same time.Terrapin Logo is included with InO-Bot and has been optimized to smoothly interact with the robot. With InO-Bot, the turtle jumps off the screen and follows Logo programs in space, drawing on paper or dry erase mat.  The Logo environment, always exciting and motivating for students, becomes even more so with an actual turtle robot running around!
