BACK OFFICE BUSINESS: Wonder Workshop Introduces New Applied Robotics Curriculum for Middle Schools that Gives Students Voice and Choice in STEM Learning

The curriculum, tailored to middle schools using Wonder Workshop’s award-winning Cue robots, applies to Block-based coding, JavaScript, and state-machine-based Wonder programming interface. It also implements a 3-year scope & sequence, CSTA & ISTE alignment, Common Core & NGSS Standards, and Connections. The Wonder Workshop middle school robotics curriculum introduces students to three different programming paradigms through a single robot, giving students the ability to scale their programming skills at their own pace. With more than 100 choices in each unit, the curriculum provides a vast universe of learning progressions. The curriculum also encourages students to follow the design process from ideation to reflection, allowing them to express their unique voice in their learning. In addition, teachers are supported with tools to implement the curriculum with ease, including a 12-hour online professional development course.
