databot™ Curriculum

Our mission at databot™ is to make interacting with and understanding data and technology a beautiful, fun, and ubiquitous experience that crosses the traditional boundaries of all learning environments. The world is driven by data and we are driven to teach future generations how to use it for good. We create data powered technology and brilliant learning activities that empower students everywhere to think deeply, explore with passion, and solve our planetary scale challenges.

databot™ was created to function as a highly versatile, multi-purpose tool capable of enhancing activities in all the core sciences as well as STEAM topics such as coding and physical computing.   We offer various types of lesson plans and activities that range from quick and easy starters to more in-depth classsroom explorations. In addition, there are a number of how-to’s and getting started tutorials for using databot in other applications such as Excel, programming with MicroBlocks® or Python, etc. Read on to learn more about the resources available to educators using databot™.


Sensor Starters

databot™ Sensor Starters are a great way for students (and educators) to quickly get familiar with the sensors on board databot and their capabilities.  Each sensor starter includes background information that explains how the sensor works, what it is sensing, what are the units used, how it is used in the real world, and even where it lives on databot!  Once background information has been reviewed, there are two engaging activities that immediately put students into engaging, interactive experiences with live sensor data!
