Does it simulate a live bee?

Designed for students 1st grade to adult, BigIQkids contestants find themselves backstage at a bee where they receive final instructions before heading out to the lectern. Under the bright lights and gaze of a supportive audience, contestants are presented with grade appropriate spelling words by Jake - the avatar moderator. Each word is given alone and then used in a sentence. The contestants have 90 seconds to type in their answer. Misspelled words mean elimination while correct answers are rewarded with advancement and the opportunity of increasing their ranking and a chance to earn a spot as a Top 25 World Class Speller.
