Second Grade Codes With Dash

The second grade students participated in The Hour Of Code during the week of December 5-9, 2016.  See the blog post here. They had a lot of fun building paper airplanes using algorithms and working through maze puzzles using Blockly.  To conclude our coding unit, students are learning to code with Dash. Thanks to our Monroe2Orleans BOCES, we have the Dash robots on loan for the month for second grade to explore.  They are using the free apps Go, Blockly, Path, and Wonder to program Dash and watch the robot run through the programs.  The students are learning review their code when Dash does not perform correctly, building critical problem solving skills.  They are also exploring creativity and having fun watching Dash follow a path they draw on the iPads. Check out the excited faces below.  We will be exploring and learning with Dash through February 6, 2016.
