Using Roamer successfully is a lot more than opening the box and reading a few programming instructions. This does not mean it is a lot of extra work – in fact using Roamer can be time saving. Why, because it helps students understand ideas better and quicker; it provides them with experiences that add value to your other lessons. You do not need to read a big manual to master Roamer. The best way is to start with a few simple activities and share the experiences of other members.
Roamer User Group – RUG
Ever since we launched the Valiant Turtle in 1985 our robots have attracted fans. Over the last 30 years we have met some wonderful teachers and fantastic kids. The stories they told us, the examples of their imagination and endeavour were the kind of thing that put a spring in your step. We did what we could to pass it on. It was hard to do in those early days. But now, with social media and web sites that is so much easier – hence RUG. This is a community site; what we need is your Roamer adventures.
