Grade 6: Making Shapes with the Pro-bot

The students in Grade 6 have already been introduced to the Pro-bot last year. They are now able to create shapes using the pen facility. They had to program a sequence of movement to get the shape they desire. Here they are busy at work!

Pro-bot Time in Grade 5

The students in Grade 5 were introduced to the Pro-bot, the big brother of the Bee-bot!  
The Pro-bot is a floor robot which has more advanced control techniques than that of the Bee-bot.
With the bee-bot they could only move in steps of 15cm forward and back, and 90 degrees left or right. But this was appropriate for their level of ability in the earlier grades. Now with the pro-bot they can move to any centimeter or degree they want. It proved to be a challenge but enjoyed controlling it.

Next they used the pen facility to make lines and designs on a paper.
