Super Dash and the Dangerous Path

By Chris R.

Play Ideas

Help Super Dash get through a path with dangers on all sides!

What you'll need:

  • Dash
Set up Time

20 minutes

Supplies
  • Toys and other items to create the dangerous path
  • Craft materials to dress Dash up (optional)

Mission:

Super Dash needs your help to navigate past some dangerous characters and obstacles! Have fun setting up the path, and then program Dash to move through it and react to the dangers on both sides.

Setup:

  1. Set up your dangerous path. You can use toys, decorated boxes, and anything else!

  2. Use Blockly or Path to program Dash to move through the path. A big part of the fun is coming up with fun ways for Dash to react to the dangers.

  3. Hit Start and watch the fun. If you make a movie, try different ways of creating dramatic lighting, like using a tall lamp or shooting the video near a window.

Play Options:

Go App

Suggested for Ages: 5+

Move Dash slowly along the path, turning left and right and reacting to the scary characters. Use the animations in Go to create fun reactions!

Path App

Suggested for Ages: 5+

Program Dash to move along the path and past the sinister characters. If you use the animations, be sure you have plenty of space, because some of them make the robot move around a lot!

Blockly App

Suggested for Ages: 8+

A fun idea is to use If Dash Obstacle On Left and If Dash Obstacle On Right blocks to program Dash to react to things along the path. These are new options in Blockly, so try them out!

Another fun idea is to rescue Dash from the dangerous path. If you use When Dash Picked Up (which is also new), grabbing Dash will cause Dash to react. In our program, Super Dash is happy to be rescued and says Wee!

Xylo App

Suggested for Ages: 5+
