Students learn to problem solve with robots and practice coding at this makerspace center or library center. Coding is one way for students to practice resilience and creativity.

There are many different robots that are designed for elementary students, and this center focuses on the Sphero™ ball robot, the Sphero™ Mini ball robot, and/or the Ozobot™ Bit line-following robot, which are suitable for both quick investigations and prolonged coding projects. You only need 1 or 2 robots to use this center, and 2 students can share a robot too.

NOTE: There are two versions of this product in my store, and this one is for Sphero™ or Ozobot™ robots only! If you are interested in using Dash™ or Dot™ robots, please see the related product, Educational Robots Driving & Coding Makerspace / Library Center {Elementary}.
