CSED Week: Dash and Dot with CU Science Discovery
In celebration of Computer Science Education Week, CU Science Discovery invites you to the Boulder Public Library for an afternoon of interactive, hands-on coding fun! We’re excited to introduce you to our impressive robots, Dot and Dash. Dot and Dash respond to voice commands, they’re able to navigate objects, and they can sing and dance. This workshop will teach a few coding basics to our novice participants and improve Dash and Dot expertise for those who have experience with them. We’ll learn to program Dot and Dash to race, bowl, draw, and avoid obstacles using the Blockly and Wonder Coding Apps. We look forward to seeing you there!
Registration required, ages 6-12.

This event is part of Boulder Computer Science Education Week, December 1-8, 2018.
Create apps. Code robots. Design stories. Explore new technologies, new programming languages and environments, meet robots, try coding, engage with problem solving and gadgets. Meet extraordinary people of all ages doing amazing things during Boulder CSED Week.
Boulder CSED = free Computer Science Education programs for everyone at your library, school and tech partner organizations.
We have code at our fingertips as we drive our cars, check the news on a laptop, or message a friend with our cell phones. Boulder CSED Week invites learners of all ages (adults, school aged kids, and even pre-schoolers) to consider code and create with it! Experience robots, and control them with code, make a block based program or write out coded instructions, learn how to code a new device or make an app, visit with a robot at story time, and more! All of Boulder CSED Week’s program are free and open to the public. Programs are hosted by local experts, educators, and makers, and inspiring technologies offer pathways for code-learners of all levels of experience. Some programs ask for pre-registration. Join us - create with code for this year’s Boulder CSED week!
Volunteer. Present. Build, test, experiment. Solve tricky bugs. Be a code creator!
