Coding with Dash


This week in Mrs. Wilcken’s class, we learned how to use the programming app Blockly to program the robot Dash. We looked at a few of the basic block components and then challenged students to create a knock-knock joke to the theme of interrupting robot. This introduction lesson will provide inexperienced coders with an opportunity to work with the Blockly app before they are tasked with a curriculum aligned assignment. Students learned that testing their code led them to revise and edit their original design. We will follow-up this lesson with a project where students need to program Dash to describe the characteristics of the 8 regions of the United States. Stay tuned for pictures from the regions project!
