The HEXBUG product line can have more presence in the classroom than just fundraising for your school group. Dr. Marsh over at powertolearn.com gives some examples of how to use the HEXBUG in the classroom to challenge your students.
Whether you’re a gadget junkie or not, you’ll fall in love with the little micro-robotic creatures called Hexbugs. The 2.25″ *1.25″* 2.25″ wonders weigh just .038 lbs making them a perfect size to fit right into the palm of your hand. If you turn them on and keep them in your palm, their six little legs will tickle your skin as they try to get out of your hand. As soon as you put them down on a flat surface, they’ll take off wandering wherever they please (except on heavy carpet) until you or your students decide to tame them. -And that’s where the fun comes in.
