Root Robot - Coding & Robotics Solutions
Root Robot is a versatile tool for students from elementary school up through high school. The programmable robot includes three levels: graphical coding for younger learners, computational coding, and then text coding for older and more advanced students. The projects included in the system and teaching materials enable you to embed computational thinking across the curriculum, including math and ELA. The teacher coding app experience makes it easy to integrate root into the classroom experience for both whole class instruction and in groups through project-based learning. Root has been created by experts from Harvard University and is available for use with early teacher innovators through Sunburst. Contact us to learn more.
StudioWeb (NEW VERSION) - Coding Curriculum & Certifications (Grades 6-12)
Wonder Workshop is a combined hardware/software solution especially designed for key elements of hands-on, sensory play and experimentation. Students can experiment with design thinking across subjects while building coding skills to program a robot with their own avatar. Wonder Workshop’s middle school solution is an incredibly clever robot named CUE and includes emotive artificial intelligence systems, enhanced sensor capabilities, and more.
Kano demystifies how technology works. Kano knows that a steady stream of innovative instructional resources (hardware, software, and curriculum) are needed to ensure that students have the kind of foundational knowledge that endures. Students build their own Raspberry-Pi-based computers, light displays, and motion sensors and create art, games, music, and more with code, guided along every step of the way. Teachers receive full curriculum support.
SAM Labs provides everything you need to deliver the most engaging STEAM learning experience for your classroom, STEAM lab, or makerspace. Teachers and students love creating projects with SAM Labs, integrating coding across many subjects including biology, life sciences, math, and more. SAM Labs kits seamlessly connect software and hardware with lesson plans, enabling students to be creative in building engineering projects with sensors. Turn the Internet of Things (IoT) into an accessible, experimental, interactive and fun experience for learners of all abilities.
The CodeMonkey curriculum is built as a self-paced online game, where students advance through a progression of challenges. In each level, students write real code to program a monkey to catch all the bananas on the screen. Each solution is checked and graded automatically, and the students receive personalized instructions and hints that help them advance at a pace right for them. Curriculum is available for students at all grade levels.
Sunburst Safe Schools Solutions
We have launched a new portfolio of programs focused on Safe Schools and social-emotional learning (SEL) as a complement to our STEAM suite––really supporting those NGSS standards and 21st century skills around collaboration and communication. We have best-in-class programs available that cover grades K-12, including:
We’re looking for early innovators to support the launch of these programs. Please let us know if you are interested in learning more or visit the SafeSchools website at safeschools.sunburst.com.
Please share a description of what your students did for Hour of Code
this year. If you didn't run Hour of Code programming this year, please
share on the ways you engage your students with STEAM learning and
coding throughout the year.
