Code and Go Mice examples

Code and Go Mice

(10 Mouse Maze games, 10 Mouse Math games, and 5 Mouse Mania board games)

Similar in size to a computer mouse, these mice are programmable by users to follow a series of commands entered by the buttons on their back.

Mouse Maze Game: Help Colby the Mouse get to the cheese by programming him around the maze. There are 20 different options of predesigned mazes. After students try different mazes – have them create their own for added challenge and fun!

Mouse Math Game: Use the number board to help Jack the Mouse count by 1s, 2s, or 3s. You can also flip it over and program it to match shapes. Or lay out the number line to practice addition and subtraction by rolling the dice and programming the mouse to the correct answer.

Mouse Mania (Board Game): Players will “compute” their path around the board collecting cheese wedges. Note: this is a board game that doesn’t use the moveable mice but teaches similar concepts.

(Recommended Grades K-3rd+)

Dash and Dot

(9 sets with activity kits)

Dash and Dot are robots that users can program using different tablet apps. Some of the apps begin with just connecting tiles; more advanced apps use Blockly programming – tiles of code that the user arranges for Dash (and Dot) to perform. As users progress, they can add accessories to Dash and Dot to create new challenges. (Recommended Grades 1+)

NEW 2022: We have complete accessories kits, ball launchers, and xylophones for each Dash and Dot Kit. There are also Teacher’s guides and Challenge Cards to use for inspiration integrating the robots into lessons.
