For a class of 15 to 30 students, Grades 6-8. Girls and boys delight in programming Scribbler robots to draw amazing things, dance the Hokey Pokey (or other dance routines) flash lights, and complete science and math lessons disguised as fun projects. The hole in the center holds a pen to draw, and students must use math to control the robot and create their drawing. Blocky language is used for coding and the robot is connected to a computer via a USB port. Rechargeable battery is included, and a USB connector (similar to cell phone) is used for charging.
