In this lesson designed for high school students (Grades 9-12), students will use their knowledge of programming to program the Micro:bit and Cutebot (robot) to navigate the “race track” in the quickest time.
Learning objectives in this activity include:
(1) Automatic Collision Avoidance: Students will work in pairs to create a program that makes the Cutebot autonomously avoid collisions on a track.
(2) Line Tracing: Students will work in pairs to create a program that makes the Cutebot follow the track. Along the way, they’ll have to determine the maximum speed of each wheel to complete the turns in the track.
