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.
- Coding lessons introduce critical thinking, problem solving, the scientific method, algorithms, and more!
- Use tablets or smart phone aps with drag and drop graphic interfaces to control the robots.
- STEAM lessons are adaptable to different age groups, and expandable for teaching additional concepts.
- Teacher Prof. Development and support available—getting started, use
of robots, coding, lesson plans. Any math, science, or technology
teacher can use these robots in a class, summer camp, or after school
program, with no special credentials required.
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.
Features & Benefits
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.
