Coding is the new team sport for future tech leaders and innovators. This year, teams will participate in three rounds of missions over a five-month period to become eligible for a Wonder Workshop sponsored Invitational Round in Spring 2018. Teams of kids, ages 6-8 and 9-12, will design solutions for real-world science and technology challenges by programming Dash & Dot. They will develop problem-solving and creativity skills while building meaningful relationships with their peers and having fun! Plus they will display their scientific thinking through authentic journaling.
The Wonder League Robotics Competition started in 2015 and has reached more than 24,000 kids in just two years. This growing network of coding and robotics clubs uses our all-inclusive program to inspire an early love of coding, computer science, tangible learning and STEM education.
Through a series of story-based missions, the teams develop problem-solving, growth mindset, and creativity skills through learning to code. Last year, we invited international teams to participate, and Team X-PLODE, the 6-8 age category grand prize winners, hailed all the way from Bangalore, India.
The grand prize winners for ages 9-12 was an all-girls team, The Pink Eagles, from Hartland, Michigan, who gained national notoriety for their dedication and persistence.
