Learn ABCs – Invent – National Engineers Week

Feb 18, 2021

Our ABC's and 123's series continues!

Welcome back to our ABC’s and 123’s series!

We’ve created programs for each letter so that your students can save these projects to their My Projects folders, understand how the code works, and then watch Dash trace out the letters using Sketch Kit.

Below are printable PDF’s that include the program codes that students need to add to their Blockly Apps or their accounts in the web version of Blockly.

Check back every Friday for new letters and numbers as we roll out new themes each week!

This week, help Dash spell the word INVENT!

Get ready for National Engineers Week (Feb 21-27) by teaching Dash how to write the word INVENT!

The National Society of Professional Engineers, hosts of National Engineers Week, is “dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.” Looking for ways to inspire the next generation of Engineers? Access NSPS’s toolkit here: http://www.discovere.org/content/celebrate-engineers-week.

Wonder Workshop is also invested in advancing girls of color in engineering, so we’ve put together this reading list, “Inspiring STEM Books for Girls of Color.” For more about each book and links to purchase, click over to our blog post about it.
