Help me give my students the opportunity to code with different types of robots.

Many of our students come from a farming community. It is all that they know. They do not have the technology background as big cities have. Many students never get to leave the community to see what it is like elsewhere.
My students are growing as coders in the classroom, but I have discovered that different types of robotic equipment is needed so that they can see that many types of robots exist and coding is all it takes to interact with them.
My students are eager to learn and are willing to try out new things. Each student has been assigned a Chromebook and are learning how to use a take care of it. Right now, I only have one type of robot in the classroom (Lego EV3) to be shared across the classes.
Many of my students have a negative attitude when it comes to computer science. I want to foster a feel good feeling that "yes, you can code." If they can see what they have created in action it will inspire them to become better coders.
Robots give them the visual inspiration needed in coding.
By programming a robot to move, they can see if mistakes are made. I am requesting one Cue Coding Robot and three Sphero Bolts. The students will use Chromebooks to create code using drag and drop blocks to make the robots move.
The students will program the robots using different web-based programs and applications. All programs are similar.
