What are Dash and Dot?
Dash and Dot are Two Robots that Students can use APs to Control and then Program. Dash likes to move around while Dot stays in one place until it is picked up and used to control Dash.
Children are discovering a world of creativity, coding, and fun with Dash & Dot.
Easy to use tablet APs allow easy control of each robot. The APs allow the robots to make fun sounds, flash lights, change colors of lights, follow a path, and more. Students first use the APs and then use Blocky code to program the robot.
Dash & Dot are designed for grades K - 5. Teachers around the world are using Dash & Dot for a variety of STEAM subjects including computational thinking, math, science, and music/arts. Students create stories and play games while learning.
There are three buttons on top of Dash and Dot which can be pressed as part of IF THEN statements which control when Dash moves, when sounds are made, when lights are flashed, etc.
We set a low floor but a high ceiling for coding. Blockly is a drag-and-drop programming language that snaps together like puzzle pieces. Start by sending simple commands, learn programming concepts, and progress to creating more complex algorithms.
Accessories include a Xylephone, Brick connectors for connecting Legos and other blocks, Bunny Ears, A tow package, and a Bull Dozer package!
