Bee-Bot Wins Gold Award at Practical Pre-School Awards Ceremony.
On September 30 2005, Bee-Bot was awarded a Gold Award at the Practical Pre-School Awards in London. Peter Ellse, the TTS Marketing Director, said "In all the years that we have been delivering products to Early Years, we have won many Silvers and Bronzes, but this is our first Gold. The Bee-Bots have only been used in schools for a few weeks and already we are winning awards. It's fantastic!"
Sturdy construction and colorful design entice children to put Bee-Bot through its paces. Directional keys are used to enter up to 40 commands which send Bee-Bot forward, back, left, and right. Pressing the green GO button starts Bee-Bot on its way. Bee-Bot blinks and beeps at the conclusion of each command to allow children to follow Bee-Bot through the program they have entered and then confirms its completion with lights and sound. Children want to use Bee-Bot over and over and are inspired to enter ever more creative and complex command sequences.
Compact size and durable materials make Bee-Bot child- and classroom-friendly. Bee-Bot is equally adaptable to home and school environments and boosts enthusiasm for experimentation and learning wherever it is used.
