  • Coding with Robots

    This class is coding for beginners! Coding is just a fancy word for the language of computers. Using Pro-Bots, which are robots that look like race cars, and other types of robots, you will "teach" your robot by entering commands on the computer that tell your Pro-Bot which direction to move. Your Pro-Bot will have a marker on board and as it carries out your commands, a design will appear on paper. In addition to Pro-Bots, you will use Bee-Bots and Ozobots along with beginning coding programs in our computer lab. Rumor has it that coding to move an Angry Bird through a maze might be in the plans!
