Take your S3 for a test drive with these BlocklyProp Simple Scribbler tutorials featuring Motors blocks. Drive speeds, drive distances, draw shapes and have fun!
The Scribbler 3 robot features LED indicator lights and a built-in speaker – all accessible in your programs using the BlocklyProp programming environment. Click here to experience Lights and Sounds with your S3!
If you're new to the S3 and/or BlocklyProp programming environment, start here. This section has tutorials that will introduce you to BlocklyProp and to the blocks you'll be programming with in future tutorials.
The Scribbler 3 robot excels at autonomously navigating, following lines, and avoiding obstacles using its various onboard sensors. The tutorials in this section will teach you how to create and modify S3 navigation programs in the BlocklyProp programming environment.
If you are new to the Blockly programming environment with the Propeller development boards, including the Activity Board WX, start here. This tutorial will introduce you to BlocklyProp and prepare you using it with other tutorials and your own projects.
The S3's exposed hacker port is perhaps one of it's most exciting new features. These tutorials will introduce you to just how easy it is to "hack" your Scribbler 3 robot with a variety of added sensors you can program right from the BlocklyProp programming tool.
Ready to learn to program with BlocklyProp? If so, you are in the right place.
This set of activities will help you get familiar with the basic BlocklyProp blocks, how to use them, and how they work together. You will build programs for common coding tasks: naming and using values, doing math problems, making decisions, and repeating sections of code.
Need help parking in just the right spot to clear the garage door without tapping the front bumper? Use the PING))) Ultrasonic Distance Sensor to measure the distance to your car, with indicator lights to tell you when to stop. This little project uses the parts in the BlocklyProp Starter Kit.
With just two servos, the ColorPal sensor, and a whole lot of hot glue, you can build your own Candy Sorter and program it in Blockly. Yum!!!
BlocklyProp + Multicore = Amazing! Learn how to build and use functions—re-usable chunks of code—with BlocklyProp. Then, try launching the functions into their own cores to run at the same time on the multicore Propeller microcontroller.
