Computer Science Level 1 With Vexcode VR Virtual Robotics Programming - FLEX
Sally Morris - Tech/SPED
Learn robotics programming using a virtual robot and Scratch-like coding blocks
Students will learn how to program a virtual VEX robot to move through various virtual "playgrounds" using a programming interface based on Scratch (no previous Scratch knowledge necessary). Class Syllabus: Week 1 & 2 - Introduction & Moving Your Robot: This week will have a general introduction to the website and the programming tools. Students will learn how to move the robot forward, backwards, right and left, and how to sequence these commands to meet the goal of knocking all the...
Students will learn basic block-based coding skills to navigate a virtual robot through different courses or "playgrounds". Skills learned include basic movement, loops and conditionals, using robotic sensor inputs.
