Lesson 12 – Robots that can See

Snack & Chat

I’m wearing my glasses today because my eyes need a break from my contact lenses. Sometimes our eyes can change shape just enough that the information about what we are seeing gets blurred, and we have created glasses and contact lenses to help us see.

In fact we’ve created a lot of things to help us see. We don’t see very well in the dark, so we’ve invented lights. We can’t see very far away, so we’ve invented telescopes and binoculars.

A lot of scientists are quite interested in how seeing works and are developing robots that can see:

What jobs could you do with a Robot that could see?


1. Bee Bots – Free time

Today’s time with the BeeBots will be free time.

2. Get Creative – Draw a Seeing Robot

Draw a picture of a robot that can see and what kind of job you would get it to do for you if it could see. Can it see in a way that you can’t?

3. Explore – Boo Bah

If you’re done with exploring here, you can join the QPootle gang in some more exploring games on CBeebies.

Space is a fun place to be with Q Pootle 5! Pootle and his friends tackle the everyday problems of the final frontier.

Q Pootle 5 takes a rather bored Oopsy to a very special place to look at the wonders of space – and the wonderful things a bit closer to home too.
