Dash robot is one of the coolest, cutest robots around and it's on a mission to help KS1 and KS2 children learn to code.
A real robot Dash is a ready-assembled robot that requires almost no setting up and it even has a built-in rechargeable battery, so getting going couldn't be easier.
But whilst it is really easy to use and set up, Dash is a really smart robot that is packed with features and sensors - it can detect objects around it, knows which direction a sound is coming from, record and playback sounds and communicate with other Dash and Dot robots.
Programming Dash Wonder Workshop have created a whole suite of applications for iOS and Android phones and tablets. The apps are also available for Kindle.
For younger children (5 to 7 years old) thePath,XyloandGoapps are an excellent introduction to basic sequencing, spatial reasoning and navigation. For older children,WonderandBlocklyoffer a visual coding experience that guides beginners through their first programs and lets students experiment with logic, loops and variables as their skills increase.
