If you have the Dash and Dot robots, you have probably received a few e-mails from Wonder Workshop describing the upcoming Robotics Competition. I highly recommend that you consider entering a team (deadline for signing up is 11/1/15)! This set of 7 missions looks like fun and a great opportunity for collaboration and problem solving.
All of the missions must be recorded and submitted together by 12/1/15. The winning team (which can be 1-6 people, ages 6-11, supervised by an adult) will win an all-expenses-paid “STEM Field Trip” to California! The top 4 teams will receive a Dash robot for every member of their team!
You need at least one Dash and one Dot robot to participate. If you don’t have these fabulous robots, the competition page gives you a coupon code for $20 off an order of the pair.
My students love these robots, and there are even more apps to use with them now than when they first debuted. This summer saw the release of the “Wonder” app, and last year “Tickle” app integrated Dash and Dot into the hardware that you can control with a mobile device and block programming.
For more information and the first 6 missions, which you can start now, visit the website now. Remember, you must sign your team(s) up by 11/1/15!
