Programmable Robot Travels Around the Town!

We helped ‘Dizzy Tron’ to travel around the town today. We chose buildings for him to visit and then told him how to get there.

Dizzy Tron is a programmable robot and the children have to give him instructions on how to move. This helps develop early coding and programming skills. The children also learned all about the places in the town. We’ll post some videos soon!
