Blockly is a visual drag-and-drop programming tool developed by Google that allows children to snap together commands like puzzle pieces. Take on coding challenges and invent your own creations by using Blockly to control Dash & Dot!
Learn concepts like sequencing, events, loops, algorithms, operations, and variables through self-directed play and guided challenges. Basic puzzles teach the concepts of coding through playful project ideas, allowing kids to learn and explore all on their own. Bonus puzzles are added each week for endless entertainment and learning.
Kids can confidently embark on their own coding adventures with their newfound knowledge, a dash of creativity, and robot buddies - Dash & Dot. For ages 8 and up.

Ratings and Reviews
Wow... What a app!
For developer(s),I have a Dash and a Dot and when I play this game I love it but some puzzles for me are impossible to do!😡 like I try to clap so
dash can hear me, but it doesn’t work!?!? Which is a little disappointing but good app for school! 👍🏻
Developer Response ,
Wanted to reach out and see if we could help in some way. If the clap does not work for some reason you can also try tapping (very lightly) Dash's head with a pencil to see if you can get home to respond. If that still does not work please reach out to us at email@example.com
Don’t understand the bad reviews- works fine and is a fun quick way to program
Needs a little more work for Dot
Just got our son a Dot for the holidays. The first puzzle cannot be completed as the sounds it is packaged with are for Dash and not Dot.
