Over the past year, many incredible lessons (including remote-friendly lessons) have been added to the Ozobot Lesson Library. So, we’re putting our Ozobot spin on March Madness, and featuring 16 lessons that will go head-to-head until a favorite is chosen!
Fill out your brackets with your predictions by March 8th. The matchups will be posted on Twitter throughout the week starting on March 9th, and people will vote for their favorite lessons in Ozobot Classroom. Lesson likes will be tallied on Friday of each week to determine winners. You don’t need to have Ozobots or to have completed these lessons to play.
Vote for Your Favorites for Multiple Chances to Win
There are four “conferences” of lessons that will be competing:
- Math & ELA (Core Subjects)
- Science & Engineering
How to Participate

US Educators, fill out your complete March Madness bracket with your predictions for lessons matchup winners by March 8. Post your completed bracket on Twitter with the hashtag #OzobotMarchMadness and tag @ozobot to compete to win prizes! To be fair to everyone, we cannot accept submissions after the first matchup has been posted.
Math & ELA
Students program their bot to randomly select a number of units for the length and width of a rectangle. Next, they use the numbers to draw the rectangle on grid paper and find the area by counting the units and multiplying the length by the width.
Students solve division problems to try to beat Ozobot to the finish line!
In this lesson, students identify the correct way to spell and use irregular plural nouns and use Color Codes to program their Ozobot to move to the correct irregular plural nouns by either turning left or right and use the noun in a sentence.
Students sequence and describe in detail how to make their favorite sandwich (real or imagined).
Science & Engineering
Students look at different patterns to predict the motion of their bot. Students use their predictions to program their bot to show the patterns in motion. Then, students create real-world simulations of patterns in motion using lines and Color Codes.
Students explore how certain traits are inherited in animals by programming their Ozobot to randomly choose a trait from a pair of parents. Then students put the chosen inherited traits from the parents together to draw an example of the offspring.
Students create an interactive model of a flower garden to demonstrate how animals help with pollination. Then students collect data about the flowers pollinated.
Students will work through the Engineering Design Process in guiding Ozobot from the top of a page (Locker) to the bottom of a page (Lunch Room).
Santa’s reindeer need to be very precise to land on a rooftop. Use the launchers and Color Codes to ensure your Reinbot stops somewhere on the rooftop!
Students 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.
Students dress Ozobot as a dreidel and play the dreidel game to win gelt!
Students program their Ozobot to travel around a family Lunar New Year celebration to collect red envelopes containing random amounts of money. Then, students calculate how much money was collected.
2020 brought lessons we never thought we’d see… Like Ozobot’s Mad Dash to get toilet paper! During the sudden onslaught of grocery hoarding during a pandemic, Ozobot must travel to several stores to find some toilet paper!
Students create a healthy behaviors arcade game then code their Ozobot to play the game.
Students get hands-on with math using markers and graph paper to determine codes with a particular area and perimeter.
Originally created for students with disabilities, this activity gets students hands-on with the different life stages of a butterfly.
