The Connection between Robots and Coding
With a higher demand for STEM, it’s important that the next generation learns how they can make a difference in their world. Coding has become popular because it is an easy way to teach STEM in schools. Coding is the tool of the 21st century child. When you consider how many electronic products we use daily, you quickly realize how coding has become an integral part of our lives.
Robotics is one solution your school can use to teach coding. EducationStore through our partners provide simple education focused robotic solutions. Depending on which robot your school works with, STEM concepts can be taught with visual design, mechanical engineering, patterning, transformations, Cartesian grids, direction, algebra, and so on. If you do your work correctly, the robot will do what you want. If you do it incorrectly, it won’t.
Kids can watch their virtual coding turn into tangible learning experiences in real time as Dash, with its performance and multiple sensors, interacts with and responds to its surroundings. A thoughtful design and approachable personality make Dash the perfect companion for both boys and girls, right out of the box — no assembly (or experience!) necessary.
The award-winning Dash guides kids of all experience levels through a library of in-app challenges to inspire tomorrow’s inventors. Express creativity and exercise critical-thinking skills by programming the robot to bring code to the canvas by drawing geometric shapes, designs, and words with precision.
Dash & Dot robots bring the creativity and critical thinking of coding to life for kids within an engaging robotic wrapper. Working in tandem with a tablet or smartphone and a growing suite of free apps compatible with iOS and Android devices, children can discover a world of learning and fun with the robots that bring imaginations to life and encourage problem solving by exploring the possibilities programming creates.
