Robotics with Blockly for Elementary and Middle School

Designed as a stand-alone educational robotic platform, the Scribbler 3 Robot is ready to go right out of the box.   It arrives pre-built, fully-encased in a durable green shell, and preloaded with a few simple demo programs to show off its exciting capabilities.  The Scribbler 3 can be programmed using our BlocklyProp visual language for Windows, Mac, or Chromebook, or with text-based programming languages like C and Spin.

Robotics with Blockly for Elementary and Middle School - Professional Development Course

With an abundance of programming options, the Scribbler 3 robot can fulfill the needs of any learning environment.  We’ve had success integrating into curriculums for elementary classrooms through vocational robotics courses.  You will see how authentic, hands-on learning with the Scribbler 3 is paired perfectly with our in-depth Learn website tutorials to develop logic-based problem solving skills. After the course, you will be able to explore and address real-world automation problems with your students as they learn, code, and test with the Scribbler 3 robot.
