Play Ideas

Dress Dash up in the finest robot fashions and program a runway walk!

What you'll need:

  • Dash
Set up Time

30 minutes

Supplies
  • Craft materials
  • Construction paper for the runway
  • Anything else you can think of to add your own creative twist!

Mission:

Put on your own robot fashion show featuring Dash! Use craft materials or Legos for the outfit and accessories, and use Blockly or Path to program Dash to move down the runway and back. Be sure to add a little style and attitude to your robot model’s walk!

Setup:

  1. Create a costume for Dash. You can use craft materials, doll clothes, the Bunny Ears and Tail, or even Legos with the Building Brick Connectors.

  2. Set up a runway. It’s easy to set this up on the floor or on a coffee table. You can also use boxes to create a platform. Your robot model needs an audience, so grab a few toys and line them up along the runway.

  3. Now it’s time to program your runway walk. You can use Blockly or Path to program Dash to move down the runway, turn, and return to the starting point. Be sure to add a little extra style to your walk. Dash can look around, make a comment, or even do a little dance.
