" The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe."

Students programmed Dot robots for Dot Day.

"Dot is a clever little robot with multiple sensors and a quirky personality that powers the Do-It-Yourself projects in the new Dot Creativity Kit. Kids will learn about robotics and develop fundamental coding and problem-solving skills while having fun. Dot’s projects range from crafting and active play to storytelling and construction." https://www.makewonder.com/dot_creativity_kit
