Dash and Dot Robots

Dash and Dot are animated, programmable, and friendly robots that empower children to explore robotics learning through play. Both bots move, glow, make sounds, sense their environment, and interact with each other; and they are wirelessly programmable. The three Wonder Workshop apps making programming these bots easy, and the included Challenge Cards and Curriculum Guide provide everything needed to teach the six fundamental coding concepts: sequences, loops, events, conditionals, functions, and variables. Including both a Dash robot and Dot robot, this kit is ideal for small group programs.

   Blockly (Dash and Dot)

  • Blockly is a drag-and-drop visual programming tool that introduces children as young as 6 to fundamental programming concepts including:

    • Algorithm Design
    • Command Sequences and Control Flow
    • Conditionals
    • Loops
    • Sensors and Events through creative problem solving.
 

   Path (Dash)

  • Path introduces children to sequences, events, and sensors through its simple draw, drag, and drop interface. Plan, program, and execute an adventure for Dash while learning fundamental concepts of computational thinking.

    Concepts taught in Path:

    • Algorithm design
    • Command sequences
    • Control flow
    • Sensors and Events
    • Problem solving
