Coding, Robotics Solution for Middle School Students Introduced

Dash, Dot—and, now, Cue—are programmable robots that bring coding to life for students and encourage students' exploration of computer science principles through activities and language they can understand.

Wonder Workshop, creator of educational robots, previewed today a middle school solution that brings coding and applied robotics into the classroom. At the center of the new solution is Cue, a robot that responds to both the block-based code used in earlier grades, as well as text-based JavaScript. Wonder Workshop will soon be releasing a three-unit Applied Robotics Curriculum rooted in design thinking principles, which will include student notebooks for Cue that are filled with activities and challenges designed to meet CSTA, ISTE-S, NGSS, and Common Core State Standards.

The launch into middle school builds on the popularity of Wonder Workshop's Dash and Dot in elementary grades, at a time when Gallup research reflects growing demand for coding education among parents, teachers, and principals. Dash, Dot—and, now, Cue—are programmable robots that bring coding to life for students and encourage students' exploration of computer science principles through activities and language they can understand. The robots are the basis for the worldwide Wonder League Robotics Competition, where students compete by using coding and robotics skills to solve social impact challenges.

The Cue for Education app is now available for Windows 10, with support for Chromebooks coming in March.
