Recommended for Elementary through Middle School.
In this activity, students get their first experience writing code for mBot using the mBlock Blockly app. Coding movement into a program is required in many of the activities in this module. Ideally students will recognize that they can control mBot much more precisely with code than they can remotely using the Makeblock app.
- Become familiar with the mBlock Blockly app (for iOS or Android).
- Write an mBot program using the mBlock Blockly app.
- Practice coding movement commands.
- Run a program on mBot.
- Practice troubleshooting when problems arise.
