Coding and Computer Science-VEX Robotics-Intermediate

Overview

Description

Overview:

Students will become familiar with the Interface, learning how to setup Robot and sensors. Students examine Robot virtual worlds, studying motor polarity movement, how to rename motors, and how to use time as a variable. Students learning how to control speed and direction, studying specifically Motor Power Levels, Turning and Reversing, and Manual Straightening. Students complete the Pathway by learning how to accomplish a specific task with their robot, studying the use of shaft encoders as a variable instead of time, writing conditional statements, and how to use the sensor debug window.

Students will become familiar with the Interface, learning how to setup Robot and sensors. Students also examine Robot virtual worlds. Students then study robot movement by studying motor polarity, how to rename motors, and how to use time as a variable. Students then continue looking at movement by learning how to control speed and direction, studying specifically Motor Power Levels, Turning and Reversing, and Manual Straightening. Students complete the Pathway by learning how to accomplish a specific task with their robot, studying the use of shaft encoders as a variable instead of time, writing conditional statements, and how to use the sensor debug window.
