What’s better than playing a game? Playing a game while learning and completing homework at the same time! Coda Quest is a online role-playing game that delivers academics through a game-based 3D environment.
Ozobot launched in fall 2014 with the vision to create an innovative way to play, learn and socially interact in an ever-expanding digital world. Through game applications and creative curriculums, Ozobot introduces interactive robots by blending entertainment and education in the family room as well as the classroom. Their mission is to provide learners as well as gamers of all ages a new option to play, learn and interact as well as inspire them to make the jump from using technology to actively shaping and creating it.
“As we have a K-12 computer science pathway we were looking for CS toys to use at our younger grade levels, and of course students love robots! Ozobot is a fantastic tool for teaching coding as the robot and programs are scaffolded allowing us to use Ozobots at numerous grade and skill levels.” – Brian Seymour
Founded in 2012, Wonder Workshop is the market leading platform for children to learn computer science and robotics beginning at elementary school age. The company’s first generation robots, Dash and Dot, are widely recognized in education and have won many major industry awards.
Today, their Dash and Dot robots, which work in tandem with a suit of free apps compatible with more than 40 iOS, Android and Kindle devices, are used as learning tools in nearly 10,000 elementary schools around the world and hundreds of thousands of homes with children. The annual Wonder Workshop Robotics Competition, which has grown 5x year-over-year, currently has over 22,000 participants from 57 countries, almost half of which are women.
Ardusat helps educators & parents make learning exciting. Teach kids hands-on science, explore coding, use real-data to enhance STEM curriculum and more – all in a way that’s designed for teachers. The Ardusat Sensor Kit is a great way to get started with basic Arduino programming and learn about sensors. It’s perfect for parents looking to get their kids started coding, engineering, making/DIYing, and more.
In each experiment, students use Ardusat to build, code, and show off what they’re learning. This isn’t a run-of-the-mill lecture or a project that takes two months. Every single experiment can be done in a class period or two, giving your students plenty of building experience.
