When we think of the new school year, we think of preparing our kids with the supplies and clothing they will need, but one thing that we do not always think about is having tools in the home that can help with encouraging our kids brain development and excitement when it comes to exploring STEM! With the world of today, we find that there are many tools that are literally at our fingertips, ready to be utilized. We can find the apps that are out there are ones that offer challenges for critical thinking and such, so when we were introduced to the Ozobot Bit, we were curious to test it out and learn more about what it can do.
With Ozobot Bit, we get a small robot, that offers so much when it comes to development and critical thinking which helps with building life skills and more. I also like that with this product, it can be used to bring the entire family together on a family game night, or be used by just one player, offering 5 modes of play, from Novice to Master!
Ozobot uses a easy to understand color code language, which makes it an ideal choice when it comes to showing young minds various concepts that will be very important for them to have in the world we live in today! The Ozobot is a little, but amazing program that turns those important concepts of STEM into games and apps that the kids can follow and gain skills from.
The kids can utilize the features which include the light communication, that allows the user to load commands onto the robot using flashing lights. It also helps to build confidence by making what the kids might see as boring or hard when it comes to computer science, a fun learning experience. Teaching the kids how to program, and giving parents tools they can get from the STEM/STREAM lesson plans so the kids can keep going by using the apps, and even teach their Ozobot to dance and create their own apps!
In all, making the Ozobot Bit, not only a great product to have when looking for ways to help your children build those important skills they will need when it comes to STEM, but also a great must have item to add to those back to school must haves to have in the home!
Product received, thank you to Ozobot as well as the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.
