Computer Science - Python Edition - VR VEX Virtual Robotics Programming

Class experience

Intermediate Level
8 lessons//8 Weeks
 Week 1
Lesson 1
Introduction
This week will have a general introduction to the website and the programming tools.
 Week 2
Lesson 2
Moving Your Robot
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 Castle Crasher pieces off the table.
 Week 3
Lesson 3
Repeating Behaviors
Students will learn how to use repeat loops and the pen tool to create a drawing as their robot drives on the playground.
 Week 4
Lesson 4
Programming the Bumper Switch
We will use the robot's sensor input to program the robot to navigate a maze using the Bumper Switch.
 Week 5
Lesson 5
Distance Sensor
Learners will program the robots using the front and down distance sensor "eyes" to navigate a virtual playground. Programming will incorporate the Drivetrain, Sensing and control coding blocks.
 Week 6
Lesson 6
Color Sensor
Students will use the color sensor combined with conditional programming statements ("If") to navigate a maze.
 Week 7
Lesson 7
Disk Mover Challenge
Students use the Electromagnet on the robot to find and pickup disks to transport using the loop programming skills they have previously learned.
 Week 8
Lesson 8
Algorithms
We will take a look at how to develop algorithms to enable the robot to respond to changing conditions.
Students will learn basic text-based Python coding skills to navigate a virtual robot through different courses or "playgrounds". Skills learned include basic movement, loops and conditionals, using robotic sensor inputs.
