Ozobot is a tiny robot that moves as you program it to by simply coloring on paper with magic markers or even lines on an iPad. Ozobot reads the color of a line, and changes its body color to blue, green, or red. There;39;s more to the colors you use, they are also codes for the bot to follow. They can make the bot speed up, slow down, turn, and more. Ozobot lets users experiment with basic programming. It is about the size of a quarter and about one inch tall. It takes about 35 minutes for the Ozobot to be fully charged, and the battery will last for about an hour. In the set you will find everything you need including charging cables and 4 felt pens for drawing/coding. The tips of the pens are thick which is required for Ozobot to pick up and follow. Parents felt that this was a great, innovative, non-intimidating introduction to computer coding. It requires concentration, problem-solving, imagination, patience and focus. They also commented that it is quite appropriate for the suggested age.
