Meet Dash, Your Child’s First Robot Friend

Opening their eyes to how the world around them works, Dash guides kids through the world of coding and robotics, turning ideas into adventures.

Dash is an exciting, hand-on learning tool for students in grades K-5! Targeted at teaching creative problem solving, coding and robotics, Dash gives every student a head start on fundamental STEM principles and 21st century skills. Students send commands to robots to move them, light them up, and have them detect the world around them using 5 free coding and robotics applications available on iPad and Android tablets.

Meet Dash

Dash is a real robot, charged and ready to play out of the box. Responding to voice, navigating objects, dancing, and singing, Dash is the robot you always dreamed of having. Use Wonder, Blockly, and other apps to create new behaviors for Dash — doing more with robotics than ever possible. No books or camps needed!

There are no limits to what your child can do with Dash!

There’s a Dash app for every age group, learning level, and play style.

Click on the app icons above to learn more about each one

Wonder (For ages 8+)
Wonder makes robotics as delightful as finger painting. A picture-based coding language built for kids, children create detailed behaviours for Dash, creating the robot pet, pal or sidekick of their dreams.

Blockly (For ages 8+)
Designed for children aged 8 and above, Blockly introduces advanced concepts of coding through playful projects and puzzles. Exploring variables, events, conditionals and more, Dash becomes a dancer, adventurer, artist and prankster, powered by kid’s code.

Xylo (For all ages)
Program Dash to be a musical performer with Xylo. Used with Xylophone accessory, kids can program Dash to play their favourite song or make new tunes of their own.

Path (For all ages)
With Path, kids start with the fundamentals of robotics and coding before they can read! Drawing a route on their tablet or smartphone, children send Dash on journeys around the house with their code.

Go (For all ages)
Give Dash a new name, spin in a circle, blink a robot eye and more! Exploring the robot’s lights, sounds, sensors and movements, Go is the first step to getting to know all that Dash can do.
