Dash and Dot

Dash and Dot

Dash and Dot are the coolest, cutest robots around and they are on a mission to help teach KS1 and KS2 aged children. Both robots are feature-packed and can be programmed with Android, iOS, Kindle and Chromebook devices. Dash robot and Dot robot come ready-assembled and require almost no set up. They even have built-in rechargeable batteries so getting going couldn't be easier.

Why use Dash and Dot in your primary school?

Dash, Dot and the apps that support them have been specifically designed for use in primary education. We appreciate that one of the biggest concerns with any school investing in Ed Tech products is cost, so if you are going to invest in hardware for use in your classrooms you need to be sure that you are going to get value for money. The best way to do this is to make a device that delivers learning outcomes across the school for children of all ages.

So who are Dash and Dot anyway?

Dash robot is ready-assembled, requiring almost no set up and it even has a built-in rechargeable battery so getting going couldn't be easier. But whilst it is easy to use and set up, Dash robot is really smart and is packed with features and sensors - it can drive around, move its head, detect objects around it, identify which direction a sound is coming from, record and playback sounds and communicate with other Dash and Dot robots.

Dot is Dash's companion and is the brains without the brawn! Whilst Dot doesn't have wheels to make it move, it has loads of cool sensors and can interact with Dash as well as being used as a stand-alone device. Dot can hear sound, light up any colour you like, know when and how it is being moved and communicate with Dash.

You can build structures using LEGO parts on both Dash and Dot by using the Building Brick Adaptors which are available separately.
