Recommended for Elementary through Middle School.
During this activity, students practice their mBot programming skills by guiding mBot through two parking scenarios: parallel parking and angled parking.
NOTE In this activity, students are presented with a set of scenarios to engage their creativity and challenge their coding skills; step-by-step directions are not included as the activity is intended for students who are familiar with programming mBot using the mBlock Blockly app.
- Practice writing code for mBot to complete a task (autonomous parking).
- Apply an understanding of the Ultrasonic Sensor to mimic the actions of real-world autonomous vehicles.
- Troubleshoot coding issues when problems arise.
