Get ready for all things spooky! October is one of our favorite months of the year because we get to bring back the Ozobot Costume Contest! We know that educators and students alike love to dress up their bots year-round, but there is something extra special about Ozo-Halloween costumes.
Entering the contest is easy. Simply post a photo of your bot dressed up in a unique costume and use the hashtag #OzoCostumeContest21. We are giving away prizes to our favorite three entries, including two Evo for Home and one prize pack of three Evo Educator Entry Kits. See official terms and conditions below. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
October Ozobot Activities
This month is so much fun to celebrate in the classroom. Why not incorporate computer science into your curriculum with some engaging Ozobot activities? Here are some of our favorites.
In this lesson, students will use Color Codes to program Ozobot to complete a path in a neighborhood when it goes trick or treating. Students will gather data to solve math operations to determine the amount of candy it receives.
Learn about how computers generate random numbers, then write a fun Halloween story using random words that Ozobot chose.
This lesson allows younger students to practice coding with color codes. This is an introductory level activity, and the codes are provided for students. Students will count candy, houses, and match pictures to color codes around a pumpkin patch.
