Virtual Dash Robot

Your subscription to Class Connect unlocks a Virtual Dash Robot inside of the Blockly app on iOS and the web.

Kids can program Dash right onscreen and see the commands play out in a rich 3-D environment we call Dash’s Neighborhood.

Dash's Neighborhood

A Robot for Every Learner.

"Virtual Dash is a game changer to get all students in my class coding at the same time. Students with no prior coding experience can work step-by-step through the puzzles, whereas students with coding experience can write code for the virtual Dash, run it, then run the same code to watch Dash move. All students are actively engaged, having fun, and being challenged!"

- Tammy Fietkau, 5th Grade Math & Science Teacher, John Milledge Academy, Milledgeville, GA

VIRTUAL DASH

Same Dash, But On Your Screen

Now every student can program their favorite robot online. Virtual Dash reimagines the delightful, award-winning Dash robot in a rich, 3D environment. Students will love creating and exploring with their own Dash while building coding skills.

Introducing: Coding Pathways

With the addition of Coding Pathways, Class Connect becomes a complete, end-to-end coding and robotics solution. The program provides Level D-F coding lessons supported by story-based activities that kids love. Teachers will track individual student progress and the platform will even highlight when a kid seems to be “stuck.
