Teach Wonder

Description Offer Contact

At Wonder Workshop, we code in kid speak. While Lincoln Logs and LEGOs were the building blocks of past generations’ play, coding is the tool of the 21st century kid. We build coding languages uniquely designed for kids ages 6 and up, putting the power of play into their hands. Dreaming up new adventures and bringing them to life, kids master this language by transforming our characters and robots into ready-to-play pals with code. With Wonder Workshop and our Dash,Dot, and Cue Robots, every kid has the building blocks to push the boundaries of what is possible.

Teach Wonder Bundle: Introduction to Coding and Robotics for Dash & Dot/Cue online professional development course + Dash robot or Cue robot
Gain a broader understanding of how coding and robotics fit into your everyday teaching with our foundational course (12 hours in total). Explore how computer science introduces new tech tools, addresses best practices of learning theory, complements thoughtful instructional design, and impacts classroom environments. Delve into the why before tackling the what and the how of Wonder Workshop’s robots. Each course module begins with an introduction and learning objectives for you, the educator, and then wraps up with a concrete connection to our robot. The modules contain a mix of original and curated multimedia content, leveraging expertise and opinions from the field, plus have multiple checkpoints for reflection via our Discussion Forum and FlipGrid (video reflections). Each course module is designed to take about two hours (12 hours in total).

Special offer for MassCUE:
Dash and Dot: MassCUE price $125 (regular pricing is $350)
Cue:  MassCUE price $150 (regular price  is $400)
