Unit 4: Introduction to Steering Robots
In this unit, the students will be introduced to steering and driving Mindstorm Robots. The unit will start by having the students understand automation through sequences. Then, the students will learn about all the components of their robot. Students will move into understanding controls and variables. Students will work through a step-by-step activity to identify what happens when one of their variables is changed in their program. The students will end this unit by designing their own unique maze, programming their robot to travel in directions (forward, backward, left, right) through the maze. By the end of the unit, the students will understand automation, sequences, and pseudocode. The students will be able to control their robot through their mazes by moving forward, backward, left, and right.
