Ozobots: Coding & Robotics

Ozobots are tiny robots that love colors and can be programmed by students to move, flash lights, dance and apply math and science concepts. Coding introduces critical thinking, problem solving, the scientific method and algorithms. Use tablets or smart phones with touch and graphic interfaces to control the robots. Many lessons and activities are meant for markers and paper only, and some lessons that suggest the use of a tablet may be adapted for markers and paper.

Age: For students age 6 and older
