Path allows you to draw a route for the Dash robot to follow. When you press the head of the on-screen Dash, the real-life Dash robot will follow the path you have drawn. You can drop various icons along the way, so that the robot plays a sound or does an action at certain points along the route.
There are various "challenges" within the software such as a racetrack and farmyard but perhaps the most powerful part is the free space which allows children to explore distances, estimating, sequencing and more.

Wonder is an introduction to coding which lets children discover sequences and algorithms using a very visual interface. Connect the commands together with lines much like you would with a flow chart and use inputs from sensors to control the program flow.
For children that are completely new to coding, Wonder can be easier to understand than the more traditional Blockly language.
