Learning to Code With Cue, the Robot With Attitude!

Help me give my students Cue, a Wonder Workshop Robot that will engage and motivate my students to learn how to code.

My Students

Our student body of approximately 700 sixth through eighth graders have vast interests but one common denominator is that they love to code. Exceeding limitations, pushing boundaries, and thinking out of the box are all facets of a preteen's life.

Students are innately curious about how things work, and I would like to give them the opportunity to learn an important skill for life: coding.

I attended a professional development workshop from Wonder Workshop and used the Cue Robot to learn coding. My middle school students would love to have this opportunity to learn more about robotics and STEM with Cue and the Teach Wonder Curriculum.

My Project

Wonder Workshop Robot, Cue, is a great tool to ignite curiosity in my middle school students. The robot comes with prepared comprehensive lesson plans aligned with core curriculum so I can teach with it right out of the box. We currently do not have computer science classes in our middle school and I think that using a Cue robot will introduce students to critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Essential skills like collaboration and communication are important components in bringing computer science lessons into our awesome middle school.

Students love robots and Cue has four middle school attitudes built in that are sure to connect with every student's personality, making the robot come alive with code.
