Anyone else Christmas present for the children looking to make this easy Learn programming can that should take a look at the Dash robot from Wonder Workshop throw. The Wonder Workshop Dash robot is programmed from the iPhone or iPad using a free app and is equipped with several sensors for ideal control. It is controlled via Bluetooth, the individual programming tasks grow with the children. A wonderful one Educational Toys.
The Learning robot arrives completely at your home. Before you give it away, however, it may need to be recharged. The connection with the app can also be checked beforehand. This is how it is for the child or children Christmas straight to play, without long preparations. So: don't buy the Dash robot as a last minute gift;)
In addition to its many functions and the programming tasks of the app, the Dash robot also has two Lego connectors. With these, the robot can be expanded and converted individually. Especially those who use Lego technology or already use the Lego robot systems experimented, got a great extension here. For smaller children, the Dash robot can be a great introduction to the world of technology and programming; which is continued in adolescence with Lego technology. You can also find other Lego connectors buy here individually.
If you give your children the Dash robot for Christmas, what will grandma and grandpa give? Exactly, the right accessories! There is a very creative selection of these, with which programming technical fine-tuning work is conveyed in a playful way. Use the movement of the robot head for ballistic functions?

Robots are the ideal way for children and young people to see programming success immediately. In contrast to programs and apps, the focus here is on physical implementation and visible and tangible success. However, if you want to write programs, you should perhaps deal with Swift; the omnipresent programming language from Apple. Free of charge via YouTube tutorials does that work the same way with inexpensive booksthat you can also get (have) given to you for Christmas. In the linked article there is also a Swift textbook for children :)
The mechanization of most areas of life is advancing and soon it will be very helpful if everyone has at least basic knowledge of programming. Therefore it is not at all wrong to get children in the mood for programming languages and their logic. Almost every larger company also offers an app - so it would be only right to learn a little Swift as well. Both the corresponding books and the Dash robot from Wonder Workshop presented here are a good introduction for the next generation. Have fun and Merry Christmas!
