The Robots are Here!

We are so excited to have the opportunity to try out some new robots with our Tech Team and my second grade class! Thanks to generous donations, our Donors Choose project was funded in less than 3 days and 2 weeks later the robots are here!

30 minutes before school started on Friday
We gathered the Tech Team before school to open the boxes and see what we have. Immediately, one of the kids found the app to program them, downloaded and started figuring it out! 

Later that day, my second graders tried out both of the Dash robots and put them through a few paces. We still don't know what Dot does, but we'll work on that when Tech Team meets officially.

Here's Dot

These are the same kind of robots that visited the White House during the Hour of Code week. We can't wait to get started programming them!
