Lead the Movement in Your School in the 2017-2018 Wonder League
Coding is the new team sport for future tech leaders and innovators. Since 2015, the Wonder League has reached more than 24,000 kids as an international community of robotics and coding clubs inspiring the creators of tomorrow.
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.
Register by September 18, 2017, when Mission One is released!
- Recruit students ages 6-12 (as of August 14) to join a team.
- As a coach (ages 18+), you can form a team of students for either age bracket: 6-8 or 9-12. Most teams have an average of three kids.
- No prep needed! We provide all of the challenges, guidelines, and best practices virtually for you to share with your team members.
- Join a Coaches Cohort on Edmodo, where Wonder Workshop will distribute and collect all materials, and encourage community conversations.
- The newly expanded window of participation allows for flexible scheduling. Your teams can spend about two hours per week to complete each mission over six weeks, or you can dedicate more time per week over a shorter period.
- Each team will need 1 Dash and 1 Dot robot, 1 programming device (see list of compatible devices), and basic arts and crafts supplies. We recommend a practice area of about 5 feet by 8 feet, for uninterrupted solution testing.
- Complete all criteria for the three rounds of missions and be eligible for the Spring 2018 Invitational Round.
