Opportunities with Ozobots: Coding with Colors

Coding with Colors Opportunities with Ozobots: Coding with Colors is a way to introduce my students to coding and robotics while fostering problem-solving skills in the areas of Science and Technology. Coding is an interactive hands on way for students to solve problems and is an important part of learning and preparing for future career readiness. Ozobot Bit Robots will encourage hands-on learning through play for students and help make problem solving concrete and tangible for them. Students will use Ozobot Bit Robots to learn programming in an intuitive way by bringing out the creative side of coding with color codes. Integrating coding into my STEAM curriculum will strengthen student understanding of the eight science and engineering practices, as well as improve problem solving, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and computational thinking skills. Upon the development of foundational coding skills, students will then design solutions for real-world science and technology challenges. The Ozobot Bit Robots will encourage hands-on learning through play for students and help make problem solving concrete and tangible.
