For this year’s Hour of Code, Wonder Workshop held a very special, student-facing 1-hour webinar with Bryan L. Miller, Senior Director of Global Strategic Outreach at Wonder Workshop. Bryan led over 10,000 students through a lesson all about robot sensors, and utilized Dash’s Neighborhood, Wonder Workshop’s virtual robot simulator, where students were able to further test out the sensors in the virtual platform.
“Dash’s Neighborhood brings the magic of our physical Dash robot to screens of students, no matter where they are in the world. This truly allows children to bring coding and furthermore, robotics, to where students learn, any time, anywhere,” say’s Bryan. He goes on to share, “this is especially important in today’s world, where students don’t have the access of learning tools, as they do while being in school, or under non pandemic conditions. Now, all students can learn this week for free, as we have unlocked Dash’s Neighborhood available to all students for CS Ed Week.”
Dash’s Neighborhood is a subscription-based service, a part of Class Connect, Wonder Workshops’s coding-focused learning management system. Throughout Computer Science Education Week, from December 7-11, students can play on Dash’s Neighborhood for free, with no sign-up process. To gain access to Dash’s Neighborhood for your students, and playback of the student-facing lesson, you can sign up below and you will be emailed information.
