2018 Service & Outreach
Rocks and Robots Camp Mentoring
Rocks and Robots Camp has students learn about robots and rock climbing. Some of our Dreadbot students were volunteer mentors for the camp.
Coding Buddies Program
The Dreadbots created a program to teach young kids to think like a programmer, so they will have an easier time learning programming. The kids play games like codingFarmers, Robot Turtles, Littlecodr, and qwirkle with the Dreadbot students as their mentors. The idea is that kids that may be intimidated by programming, won’t even realize they are learning program thinking because they are playing games and having fun.
