Creating a Drawing Accessory for Dash the Robot

posted Mar 1, 2018, 5:22 AM by Patrick Johnson
This week grade 3 students broke up into teams to complete the following STEAM challenge. After they completed the challenge students reflected and self-evaluated their leaning skills for this activity (Responsibility, Organization, Self-Regulation, Collaboration).

Students worked together to build a structure to hold a marker. This accessory would allow Dash to become an artist!

Students used Lego and up up 4 rubber bands. Students used their knowledge about structures and stability when designing their accessory.

Students tested and revised their designs. Students used Dash to draw geometric shapes (circles, right angles, squares, hexagon). Students also coded Dash to draw using the Blocky Coding App.
