Wonder Workshop is finding success in teaching computer programming to young students through collaboration and with the use of Dash & Dot robots. 4,000+ student groups have registered for this year's Wonder League Robotics Competition, up from 1,000 in 2015.
Held in October, the 2016 Wonder League Robotics Competition Wonder League clubs will complete coding lessons and challenges and can win prizes and awards for their schools.
“We’ve seen a tremendous growth in the amount of teachers and students ready to embrace computer science instruction in a fun and explorative way,” said Vikas Gupta, CEO and co-founder of Wonder Workshop. “Collaboration makes computer science accessible for all students, no matter what age or background.”
Dash & Dot are cute, slick robots that are also learning tools that teach K-5 students creative problem solving, coding and robotics. Designed for teachers to use alongside classroom-tested, Common Core-aligned curriculum built by fellow educators, Dash & Dot encourage interest in STEM fields at formative ages and across gender lines.
