Programming the Robots

Today is an exciting day because we are finally going to start programming the robots!!! We have worked very hard to get to this point. I made these videos so you can use them as a reference as you start programming. I cannot wait to see your first successful program on the table today.

It is super easy to program. We will all take an active role when it comes to programming. EVERYONE will be a master programmer by the end of today.

I was super nervous it was going to drive off the counter and crash waking up the kids.

The Tank Turn

It is essential that we become experts with the tank turns. We need to take into account the power, the rotations, the battery life, etc. The list goes on and on. We are going to do everything in our power to help each other along the way. We need to always remember we are one big team willing to share our ideas with others.

A single rotation and this one almost did a complete 360˙ turn.

Reducing the rotations by 1 made all of the difference.

Today is going to be an amazing day and we cannot wait to see how it goes. Finally it is here. We are programming the ROBOTS!!! Why are you yelling Mr. Lane? I am so fired up!!!
