We’re excited to announce that Digital Dream Labs has joined Wonder Workshop’s developer ecosystem by creating a customized set of Puzzlets that work with Dash! Originally developed as a museum installation for the Children’s Museums of Pittsburgh & Houston, Puzzlets combines tactile manipulatives with digital interfaces to create a unique gaming and learning platform.
In PreK and elementary school, children are still learning and exploring the world with their hands and senses. Colorful icon-based graphics and physical tiles make coding accessible to pre-readers as young as 4 years old. As more teachers and parents are looking for screen-free solutions for children to learn STEM skills, we are excited that students will be able to program Dash without a mobile device or computer.
Kids can simply place the tiles in the Play Tray, and Dash will follow their commands. Children can program Dash to look carefully left and right before crossing the street, do a square dance, act out expressive characters in a story, and much more. But hurry, we only ordered a limited quantity of Puzzlets for Dash. Be sure to get your hands on them before they sell out!
