#canconnected
This is a fun and creative physical computing project that opens a doorway to computational thinking concepts and practices. From brainstorming to designing, engineering and programming, students create their own interactive robots. By programming microcontrollers and various electronic and mechanical components, students make their ideas come to life. This project is an adaptation of the Lawrence Hall of Sciences Robot Petting Zoo, with an additional emphasis on 3D engineering with cardboard.

ozobot
This bowling game is an example of how to use Ozobot in connection with a game piece to create fun learning activities. The objective of the game is to use Ozobot as a bowling ball and program the “ball” to knock down all pins standing on the lane.
