Robotics & Coding with Ozobots & Scratch

Ozobots, OzoBlockly, OzoGroove and Scratch Jr - Students learn how to code the Ozobot, using paper and coloured pens, the Ozobot App and OzoBlockly, then become choreographers using the OzoGroove App. The Scratch Jr App is used to make animations using simple block coding.


We use the Ozobot Bit 2.0
Ozobots have the ability to be programmed on paper, using Apps and using an online Editor.

The Ozobot has five sensors which recognise colour on a white page. Combinations of black, red, blue and green coding are built-in to the ozobot.

This workshop allows students to develop an understanding of how the robots can be made to perform manouvres as they move across the paper.
We provide the Ozobots, coloured pens and a wide selection of paper-based activities

Students are then engaged in using the Ozobot and OzoGroove Apps, as well as the OzoBlockly Editor. Participants quickly gain an understanding of block coding, sequencing and problem solving.
We provide the robots, tablets, wifi and a wide selection of activities to engage participants.

Scratch Jr App

Scratch Jr is an App for Apple and Android which allows students to create an animation with up to four scenes.
They add characters to their scenes and use simple block coding to animate each character.
their final project comes togehter when they add transitions between their scenes.

Scratch Jr is an excellent introduction to Scratch Coding.

The Ozobot App and OzoGroove App are available for Apple and Android tablets and phones.

The OzoBlockly Editor is available online.
