Yes. The programming is the same whether you are using the virtual simulator or the physical Dash Robot.

What additional resources will my child need in order to successfully complete this program?

Other than a computer with Google Chrome and Zoom, your child will need a quiet room to be able to concentrate in.  A noisy environment can be distracting to your child and the other campers.
