Dash and dot challenge cards pdf
Wonder Workshop Elementary Robotics | STEMfinityMakerspace for Education. Dash and Dot are robots that can sense, act and think! Students use block coding on four different iPad apps to control their robots. The durable and child friendly robots are a safe and easy way to encourage STEAM learning in your classroom. Maker materials can be added such as lego, tape, cardboard and more to transform your robots!
We have also seen that some of the elements are a little less self-directed then we imagined them to be. Sometimes, our teens want prompts to help get them started. Challenge cards are a great way to help get teens engaging with some of our Teen MakerSpace elements. They basically work like a writing prompt, giving just that little push needed to get the creative juices flowing. Some of the Challenge Cards we found online, others we created ourselves. Our Lego Challenge Cards are a combination of those we found online and those we created with the help of teens sitting in the Teen MakerSpace.
An education technology company that produces a pair of robots for use by kids has just released lessons to help young students learn how to code. The in-house education team of Wonder Workshop , which makes the Dash and Dot robots, created the curriculum. The team also partnered with Kodable to develop a few of the lessons. Lessons introduce students to robotics as well as programming concepts. The coding is done with Blockly , using preset programs. Blockly was created by Google as an open source visual programming language; Wonder Workshop has released app versions of the program that control its robots through mobile devices.
