The Future is Now! Richmond 5th Graders Learn to Design and Code Robots

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Richmond Elementary 5th Grade Teacher Mrs. Heimbigner won big at a February conference – bringing home more than $2,500 in robotics and programming tools for her students.

Richmond School students won big at a March conference for Computer Using Educators. Mrs. Heimbigner, 5th grade teacher at the school, attended the CUE conference where her name was drawn and she won a classroom pack of Dash and Dot Robots valuing over $2,500.

The prize included 10 Dash Robots, 10 Dot Robots, 5 Accessories Packs, 5 Building Brick Connectors, 5 Xylophones and 2 Curriculum Subscriptions that provide lessons linking computer programing to California’s State Standards.

According to Heimbigner the school received the robots last week and the students have unboxed them, named them and have started experimenting with the coding apps.

With the help of the Richmond Community Association, Richmond School now has all the tools and accessories needed to run Dash and Dot and begin the adventure of learning how to write code to program robots.

Richmond students will learn basic concepts of robotics and programming with the Dash and Dot robots
