C6: Assessment - Designing Solutions for the Classroom


Level C, Lesson 6: In this lesson, students will work in small groups, using Dash to solve a classroom problem. Students will use the Design Thinking Process to identify a problem and possible solutions. Then they will plan, build, and test a solution to the problem.


  • Demonstrate and use the coding concepts introduced in Level C to program a set of instructions for Dash to follow. These concepts include sequences with complex parameters, multiple loops, and event handlers.
  • Determine and/or clarify the meaning of terminology related to coding and design.
  • Apply the steps of the Design Thinking Process to construct a new accessory for Dash.
  • Document the Design Thinking Process in their Design Thinking Workbook.
  • Explain their ideas with peers and teachers.
