In September 20th Lego Mindstorms EV3 Robotics class, Kids learned how to calibrate the sensors on the robots and how to code using "my blocks."
In coding class we finished the code for the ellaphants we built. The kids made a program that would use the robot keypad buttons to control what it did. Up button to make the elephant walk forward. Down button for backward. Left button for head tilt and trunk trumpeting. And right button for picking up an object.
For these two weeks, kids worked on an elephant robot. It is supposed to walk without wheels.
In this week's coding class we discussed program threads and how Lego Mindstorms software allows kids to create multi-threaded programming. The kids finished building the Znap robot from instructions and then started programming it with only the rough outline that was written on the board as a guide. They need to use multiple loops, variables, and a new loop interrupt instruction.
這星期我們探討了電腦程式裡的multi-threading功能，利用Lego Mindstorms的程式設計軟體，孩子們練習了multiple loops, variables, 還有 loop interrupt。
