NEW! Dash the Robot!


The Learning Commons has added another great resource for younger students grades K-3!

Dash is a real robot, charged and ready to play out of the box. Responding to voice, dashnavigating objects, dancing, and singing, Dash is the robot you always dreamed of having. Use Wonder, Blockly, and other apps to create new behaviors for Dash — doing more with robotics than ever possible. You need a compatible device to use Dash, see list in the library record.

Go to this website to watch tutorials and learn how to use Dash.

Also included are 3 books to enhance learning:
Hello Ruby – Adventures in Coding by Linda Liukas
Boy & Bot – Ame Dyckman
My First Coding Book, DK

To book, log into L4U and go to Topic Search, then click on 001 Curriculum Resources.  Then scroll to the Maker Education (STEAM) icon for the whole list of resources.
