Robot Petting Zoo

The third grade students wrapped up their coding unit by putting on a petting zoo.  The students had been learning about the Dash robot using the Blockly app.  After learning some basics of coding from that, students researched the behavior of an animal of their choice and programmed Dash to behave like the animal.  Students also created costumes for their robots.  The excitement was palpable as each pair of students shared their work.  Some programs had bugs and others worked perfectly.  This was a great opportunity  for students to work on problem solving, critical thinking and have fun!  A great job by all our third graders!
