The table lets you compare the programming features of each Standard Roamer. All Roamers can, for example, use sensors. So could make Early Years Roamer into a car, whose headlights turned on if the students programmed it to go into a dark place. The students wouldn’t program the sensors but could enjoy finding out the shady parts of the classroom.
