Beebot Basics

An introduction to the interactive Beebots platform,
great for younger students on how a robot really works!

Fizzics Education BUTTON

An introduction to programming and logic for younger students

Using a simple intuitive interface, students program the Beebot to move forward, turn, stop, flash lights and make sounds all within themed challenges designed to teach children planning and spatial awareness.
Each Beebot can store up to 40 steps, with each step having flashing lights and sounds to confirm it is stored.

The students will work in pairs or threes as they are guided through a series of challenge mats and obstacles based around the HSIE and Science & Technology outcomes. This engaging workshop offers students a chance to learn real time programming in a fun atmosphere. Plus, it's great for students learn about coordinates and sequential reasoning.

*This is an introduction only, if you have already been using Beebots at your school for a while it is unlikely that we will introduce many new concepts due to the platform's simplicity & limits in functionality.

What schools are saying about our science shows & workshops

Presented with enthusiasm and with language the students could comprehend.
Excellent hands on activities at an appropriate level for the group, promoting thought and developing understanding. The students were very engaged.

Australian Curriculum and NSW K to 10 Syllabus Links

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes

  • Use informal measurements in the collection and recording of observations, with the assistance of digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS026).
  • Participate in different types of guided investigations to explore and answer questions, such as manipulating materials, testing ideas, and accessing information sources (ACSIS025).
Digital Technologies
  • Recognise and explore digital systems (hardware and software components) for a purpose (ACTDIK001)
  • Follow, describe and represent a sequence of steps and decisions (algorithms) needed to solve simple problems (ACTDIP004)
  • Describe position and movement (ACMMG010)
  • Use direct and indirect comparisons to decide which is longer, heavier or holds more, and explain reasoning in everyday language (ACMMG006)
  • Measure and compare the lengths and capacities of pairs of objects using uniform informal units (ACMMG019
  • Give and follow directions to familiar locations (ACMMG023)
  • Compare and order several shapes and objects based on length, area, volume and capacity using appropriate uniform informal units (ACMMG037)
  • Describe and draw two-dimensional shapes, with and without digital technologies (ACMMG042
  • Interpret simple maps of familiar locations and identify the relative positions of key features (ACMMG044)

NSW Science Syllabus Content:

A student:
  • describes a range of familiar information sources and technologies and how their purposes influence their design (ST1-151).
  • develops informed attitudes about the current and future use and influence of science and technology based on reason (STe-3VA)

NSW Mathematics Syllabus Content:

A student:
  • describes and compares lengths and distances using everyday language (MAe-9MG)
  • measures, records, compares and estimates lengths and distances using uniform informal units, metres and centimetres (MA1-9MG)
  • measures, records, compares and estimates lengths, distances and perimeters using uniform informal units, metres, centimetres and millimetres and compares and records temperatures (MA1-9MG)
  • describes position and gives and follows simple directions using everyday language (MAe-16MG)
  • represents and describes the positions of objects in everyday situations and on maps (MA1-16MG)
  • uses simple maps and grids to represent position and follow routes, including compass directions (MA2-16MG)

NSW K - 10 Science Syllabus mapping for all our incursions


  • Appropriate for Years K to 1 with a maximum of 30 students per class
  • Access to at least 2 electrical power sockets with a wide floor space
  • Chairs are not required
  • Duration 60 minutes, set up time 30 minutes and pack up time 30 minutes
  • This workshop is best run as an introduction for your youngest students due to the platform's simplicity & limited functionality


  • $360 inc. GST per 60-minute workshop when 2 workshops or more are booked on the same day.
    If only one workshop is required, the cost would be $450 inc. GST per day
  • In a regional area? Find out how we can attend your school as part of a country science tour!
Call 1300 856 828or use this form to inquire or make a booking for your primary school. 

We don't charge per student as we know that this causes an additional administrative load on your school office. Most schools tend to fill the science workshops & shows based on our recommended maximum number of students. If you have any questions please
