Coding with Dash

My students need Dash Robots to further their knowledge of coding. Coding is becoming a life skill students need to develop. Dash Robots can help students learn to love coding.

My Students

The students in my school often come from homes that are struggling to make ends meet, but they come every day to do their best and learn. We serve students in Kindergarten through sixth grade. Our goal is to get students reading on grade level and develop into confident problem solvers.

As my students realize they are successful problems solvers they develop a greater confidence for all things in life.

My students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom on a daily basis and this confidence is key. The library is a place for students to escape from the reality of life and into books and critical thinking activities.

My Project

Students can get a first had experience building original code using the Dash app with Dash Robots. They can see their codes in action as Dash moves, lights up, talks and dances around. Students string together blocks of code to program Dash and watch their ideas come to life.

When students connect the power of computer languages to their everyday technology use, they begin to see the power in knowing how to "speak computer." This new knowledge will open up other avenues of learning and possible career paths for many students by combining problem-solving skills, collaboration, and creativity students learn to love coding.
