What Teachers Say
"Two years ago, we bought our first Dash & Dot robots. We started with Code.org but I wanted to do more hands-on work so the students could see the impact... We've taken a lot of pride in encouraging our girls into STEM fields and telling them about what jobs are out there. By teaching them to code, we show them that the sky is the limit."

Meet The Robots
Designed for elementary students, Dot is a clever little robot with multiple sensors and a quirky personality. Using its accelerometer and IR sensors, Dot can respond to its environment, and can even turn into a controller for Dash! Students will learn about robotics and develop fundamental coding and problem-solving skills while having fun.
Built for middle school students, Cue is a clever robot that takes robot interaction to the next level. Easily convert between block-based programming or text-based code. Create dynamic graphical programs to make Cue react to sensor input with lifelike behaviors. With Control mode, you can directly pilot Cue or engage any of three Emotive AI modes as you seek, avoid, and explore.
The Importance of Robotics
PREPARING STUDENTS FOR THE FUTURE IS IN OUR HANDS
In today’s fast-paced technology-driven world, it’s important now more than ever to prepare students for the future. Robots are an integral part of students’ everyday lives and most of them don’t even know it!
Online and phone support available during business hours. Response time is typically 48 hours.
