What are Dash & Dot?
Dash & Dot are robots to support basic block coding in the elementary classroom. These little devices are a great addition to the classroom and provide students with an engaging way to learn coding. Let’s learn a little about each robot.
Dash can drive backward, forward, and spin. He can also move his head up, down and around. There are on board programmable buttons, lights and sensors. He’s also a show-off with programmable sounds and lights.
Dot has the ability to deliver programmed sounds, can respond to voices and claps, reacts to leaning movements and has programmable eye and light patterns.
How Can I Use Them?
