As the name suggestions this is a very ‘cute’ little robot which I was invited by Elecfreaks to try with our girls. As it was getting very close to the end of the school year I gave it to one student to play with……….well, she loved it! She reported how easy it was to assemble and to load the code onto the Microbit. Using ‘’, she selected extensions and added Cutebot, it gave specific blocks to use.

It is also possible to use JavaScript and Python…..this will be great for my grade 7’s as they learn Python!

Cutebot has distance sensors for navigation, buzzer for sound, rainbow LED for colourful lights and tracking sensors for following lines. Of course, MicroBit v2 has plenty of other features to use too.

Plenty to have fun with and learning to code along the way! The little booklet which comes with Cutebot is full of activities including code to copy. Easy for beginners.

This video is a good introduction.

As school is now out for the year, I’ll have to wait till next year for more girls to ‘play’ with Cutebot. I know Cutebot is going to be a huge hit and I will be purchasing quite a few Cutebots for our girls. A new blog post will be posted once the girls have enjoyed working with Cutebot next year 🙂

Video below is of some of the fun we have had already.
