Our second graders have been asking lots of questions about the wonderful robots they have used in STEM class this  9 weeks.  So we decided to share the names of the bots and the prices. One of the bots is called Coji and retails for $30.00. The students have also used Cozmo which retails for $170.00 and R2D2 that retails for $80.00.   Hope this helps.
