The students in Rebecca Cissel’s classroom were hard at work one morning when they heard an electronic voice greet them from underneath the teacher’s desk: “Hello, Team Cissel!” It was a small, blue, ball-shaped robot named “Dot.” He arrived with a friend -- a larger robot, “Dash,” who has wheels and can be programmed to drive around the classroom floor.
