Grade 4 are practising using Edison robots, both as an engaging way to learn about coding and robotics as well as helping prepare for their upcoming unit on “Systems”.
We are running through a sequence of self-directed intro activities to help students understand:
- The different features of the robots, the various inputs (barcode, sound, light and digital upload via cable)
- The various commands & outputs (movement, sound, line tracking, stopping/avoiding lines & physical barriers)
- Some of the basic things Edison can do (driving, navigating, racing, tracing, sumo wrestling(!))
Shortly, we will upload some student videos, also attached are some activity sheets to give you an idea of how the learning material is structured.
While these activities are probably best suited to Grades 2-5, the learning sequence continues into more complex activities that would likely be applicable to higher grades. If you would like to know more, please get in touch!
