This week we will start working with Toby! The race is on to build hands-on coding skills! Build your maze, and then use the coding cards to create a step-by-step path for Colby, the Programmable Robot Mouse. Program the sequence of steps, and then watch Colby race to find the cheese!
Today we will start learning how to code without the use of a computer or iPad. This week we will practice with a paper maze. The process of giving directions helps reiterate the steps involved in moving along a frequent path. Writing a computer program is similar in many ways. You need to tell the "computer" (your friend) exactly what to do, turn by turn or step by step.
This will be our last week coding with Awbie. This week we will be learning about using the repeat and the conditional functions.
The gray Caution Block will prevent Awbie from hitting an obstacle. By attaching the Caution Block to a command and attaching alternate commands under the Caution Block.
Happy Lunar New Year! Have a great holiday and I'll see you next week!
Below are some great websites & apps for extra practice at home.
