Level 2

  • ​Program Dash to turn to you and say Hello World! after you speak.

Try these behaviors and cues:

Level 3

  • Do your own creative version of the Hello, World! program. Program your robot to say hello to the world in your own unique way!
  • Share your Hello, World! program with the rest of the Dash & Dot community by posting a video and tagging it with #makewonder

Try these behaviors and cues:


  • Keep the room quiet (no talking) when using the Voice Heard cue so that Dash can respond to the right voice.
  • You can get creative and have Dash say more things after Hello World by adding additional custom sounds and moves!
