“Overwrite sticker made the coding part of our activity much more engaging. This time we didn't have to worry whether we'd left a gap in the line for our codes, we just decided which codes we wanted to use and stuck them over the line.” - techagekids.com
Overwrite Sticker Codes
Codes and Dots!
Stickers are Fun!
Hi, my name is Holden. I'm ten-years-old. I love to invent, draw and build. My brother and I received Ozobots for Easter 2015 and loved them from the start.
Ozobot was a great way to start coding quickly, and by the first weekend we had tons of tracks. However, we also created trash piles of half-drawn paths and mazes. We discovered that coding as you draw is difficult and frustrating. We couldn’t get the paths or codes exactly where we wanted them.
After only a week of coding, I asked my dad, “can we make stickers with these codes?”
He looked at me for a few seconds and replied, "You want to draw the track and then code the Ozobot? Yes, I think we can!"
With the help of my dad and younger brother, we designed and created stickers and called them, “Overwrite Codes.” The process took time and iteration. We had some failures, but we learned from our mistakes and improved each time.
Today Overwrite stickers are for sale here and on Amazon. We have both pre-printed sticker codes and individual dot sticker pack options for both home and the classroom, and I hope that's just the start.
Teachers, parents, and grandparents say, "It makes the process of coding easier, especially for younger kids."
My dad says, “Young or old, Overwrite sticker codes add a whole new level of control and encourages creativity.”
I've had an amazing time building something small to help encourage something big, our future. Thank you for reading this and thank you for supporting me.
