Discover a new world of play, learning and adventure

Meet Dash, the explorer and Dot, the storyteller.

Bring STEM to life with Dash & Dot robots, hands-on learning tools for grades K - 5.

About Dash and Dot

Dash & Dot by Wonder Workshop are exciting, hands-on learning tools for students in grades K-5! Targeted at teaching creative problem solving and computational thinking, Dash & Dot help students learn fundamental processes relevant for all 21st century skills. Students send commands to the robots to move them, light them up, and have them detect the world around them using 4 free coding applications available on iPad and Android tablets.

"Dash & Dot have transformed the way my students learn about coding and computer science." Susan Prabulos, technology teacher, Meadow Lane Elementary, NE

Note: Dash & Dot require iPad 3 or newer, iPad Mini, or select Android tablets. Click on the yellow specifications tab above for the compatibility list.

New ways to play and learn

Kids can define how they want to play. Whether your child is into having make-believe tea parties, building elaborate forts, or adventuring with friends, Dash & Dot will be there every step of the way. Empower your child to program Dash & Dot into anything they imagine.

Interact with the real world

It’s a big world out there, and Dash & Dot are ready help you explore. Program them to squeal when you pick them up, navigate around sharp corners, or be on the lookout for approaching siblings or pets.

Visual, hands-on programming

We set a low floor but a high ceiling for coding. Blockly is a drag-and-drop programming language that snaps together like puzzle pieces. Start by sending simple commands, learn programming concepts as you play, and progress to creating more complex algorithms.



Endless creative possibilities

Dash & Dot are even more fun with add-ons. Play a song on Dash’s Xylophone, take videos using the smartphone mount, and add bricks (including LEGOTM) to them with Building Brick Connectors. Transforming Dash & Dot is easy with accessories and a small dose of creativity.

About the Creators of Dash and Dot - Wonder Workshop

Founded in 2012 in San Mateo, California with a mission of making coding meaningful and fun for kids. Their Mission Statement is:

Make Wonder "We think kids spend far too much of their days hearing about what they should and shouldn't do.

The toy industry tells them which toys it's okay to play with. Success is too often measured by standardized performance, rather than individual ingenuity. However as parents, we want kids to learn to think for themselves.

We believe that every child should be empowered to question, think, and create. We want to encourage them to be curious and to find their own joy in learning. Coding enables creativity and agency in this new world. By learning to code, they are becoming shapers of their own world."
