Integrate coding into all subjects. Ozobots, small robots with optical sensors can be programmed with lines drawn with markers and paper, apps on iPad, and the OzoBlockly site on other devices such as PCs or Chromebooks. Students learn sequential thinking, syntax and debugging while creating racecourses, mazes and playing games.

Audience: Coaches
Skill level: Beginner
Attendee devices: Devices not needed
Topic: Computer science & computational thinking
Grade level: PK-5
Subject area: Computer science, Language arts
ISTE Standards: For Students:
Computational Thinker
  • Students understand how automation works and use algorithmic thinking to develop a sequence of steps to create and test automated solutions.
