Challenge 1: The robot must move forward by rotations, degrees and time.

Challenge 2: The robot must turn using a specific action block.

Challenge 3: The robot must turn on the spot (360) using a specific action block (two ways).

Robotics Mindstorms EV3 - Coding - Flow Control Blocks and Action Blocks

Objective: Learn to make the robot detect objects with ultrasonic sensor using the Flow Control and Action Blocks.

Challenge 1: The robot must move forward until it detects your hand then stop.

Challenge 2: The robot must move forward until it detects your hand then turn on the spot (360).

Challenge 3: The robot must move forward until it detects your hand then reverse.

WEEK 18 - JANUARY 13-17, 2020

Robotics Mindstorms EV3 - Coding - Flow Control Blocks and Action Blocks

Objective: Learn to make the robot detect black vs white with light sensor using the Flow Control and Action Blocks.

Challenge 1: The robot must move forward on black surface and when it detects white surface then stop.

Challenge 2: The robot must move forward on black surface and when it detects white surface then turn on the spot (360).

Challenge 3: The robot must move follow the edge of a white sheet of paper by shimming forward.

Robotics Mindstorms EV3 - Coding - Maze Challenge

Objective: Have the robot successfully go through a maze without touching the walls.

Challenge 1: The robot must move forward until it detects the wall and then turn.

Challenge 2: The robot must repeat the process of challenge 1 for the next 4 consecutive turns.

Challenge 3: After the fifth turn (to avoid the wall), the robot must stop at the black line.

Robotics Mindstorms EV3 - Coding - Maze Challenge

Objective: Have the robot successfully go through a maze without touching the walls.

Challenge 1: The robot must move forward until it detects the wall and then turn.

Challenge 2: The robot must repeat the process of challenge 1 for the next 4 consecutive turns.

Challenge 3: After the fifth turn (to avoid the wall), the robot must stop at the black line.

WEEK 20 - JANUARY 27-31, 2020

Robotics Mindstorms EV3 - Coding - Maze Challenge

Objective: Have the robot successfully go through a maze without touching the walls.

Challenge 1: The robot must move forward until it detects the wall and then turn.

Challenge 2: The robot must repeat the process of challenge 1 for the next 4 consecutive turns.

Challenge 3: After the fifth turn (to avoid the wall), the robot must stop at the black line.

Maze Challenge: Students will have three attempts to successfully complete the challenge and accumulate points based on a scoring system.
