Dust or grease can get into Ozobot Bit’s drive train and affect its movement.
Many lessons require black, red, light blue, and light green markers.
It is recommended to use Ozobot markers to ensure that your robot reads the colors reliably.
Crayons, dry erase markers colored pencils, water colors and highlighters should not be used with Ozobot.
You can also use Sharpie wide chisel tips (in pastel colors for blue and green) or Crayola classic markers.
If you are using permanent markers, place an extra sheet of paper underneath to avoid marks on the table surface.
Please note that Ozobot markers should only be used when drawing lines and OzoCodes.
If the markers are used to color in pictures and images then the ink will not last as long.
It is extremely important to calibrate the Ozobot robot every time you begin playing, when light conditions change and whenever you change your playing surface.
Ozobot’s infrared sensors (also known as its "eyes") are highly sensitive to surrounding light.
As a result, changing paper or moving closer to a window affects Ozobot’s ability to follow lines and read color codes.
Calibration orients Ozobot to the surrounding light and surface.
There are two methods to calibrate the Ozobot robot.
In order to create your own playground for Ozobot, you will need:
* A white sheet of paper;
* Thick markers: Black, Blue, Red and Green.
One of the advantages of Dobot over other robotic arms is the diverse array of attachments that come included in the system. This robot can manipulate objects with a gripper or suction cup, draw beautiful designs with robotic precision, 3D print, and even laser engrave! Best of all, switching between the functionalities is as simple as replacing the end attachment.
But don’t forget! The Dobot Magician has an internal computer, and just like your laptop, it doesn’t respond well when you suddenly unplug devices.
• LittleBits can fall off of desks and tables, and often end up getting stepped on.
Using cafeteria trays when students are working with the Little-Bits can help with this problem.
• Allow students to bring in their own materials, such as LEGO or K’Nex, for their projects.
