Roamer – Discovery at Every Turn

1522-110 Intelligent Charger

You charge the 6 batteries in the Roamer Power Pack in an external charger.  If during a lesson you find Roamer’s batteries are flat, you can quickly replace them with a fully charged set and the lesson continues.  You cannot do this if you recharge the batteries onboard the robot.  To fast charge the batteries safely or leave them on charge overnight, the charger needs to adjust how it charges.  This intelligent action will help your batteries stay in top condition longer.  If you follow Valiant’s recommended charging regime you can keep 5 Roamer Power Packs with one charger.

1526-101 Clear Grid Line

Invaluable for Activities with Young Students

This line is 1 square wide and 10 squares long. Forward 1 will move Roamer to the next square.  Made, like the Clear Grid Mat, from a clear durable plastic it provides an ideal running surface.  It is nonslip and allows Roamer to run over pictures without damaging them.  You will find it useful for sequence work.  Put images under each square to create interesting tasks.  For example the pupils can draw houses or shops for a street scene.  You can then use this with number line work.  Or you can play with nursery rhymes like one, two, buckle my shoe.  The possibilities are endless.

1526-100 Number Line

Roamer and the Number Line – a Potent Combination

We pioneered work with robots and number lines.  You will find plenty of Activities in the Library and in the curriculum packs.   Together Roamer and Number Lines provide students with models of arithmetic.  For example older pupils might learn a rote rule like, “Two minuses are a plus”.  If they use Roamer to explore a Number Line they focus on key mathematical ideas: what is a negative number; what is a positive number; what does subtraction look like. Instead of learning a rote rule they gain a visual, spatial and kinaesthetic understanding.

On one side Number Line has 11 squares numbered 0 to 10.  The other side has numbers 0 to -10.  If you put two together you get a -10 to 10 line.  The Line provides Roamer with a durable nonslip running surface. Forward 1 moves Roamer to the next square.

Make Your Roamer Wireless

The Bluetooth Module links Roamer to computers, tablets and mobile phones. You can quickly set up multiple Roamers for different tasks.  It makes Roamer part of a connected world, rich in educational opportunity.  For example, you can program the robot on the computer.  Students can make their Roamer talk to their friend’s robot.  Or perhaps Roamer can explore an alien world and tell “mission control” what it finds.

Technical Specification: The Roamer Bluetooth Module is a BTLE device (Bluetooth Low Energy also called BT4.0).  The latest mobile technologies come with this built-in.  Older computers use Classic Bluetooth (Bluetooth 2.0).  If your computer has this technology, then you will need a Bluetooth Dongle to work with Roamer.
