The supremely fast and capable ActivityBot 360° Robot pairs perfectly with the beginner-friendly BlocklyProp visual programming system. This tutorial series is perfect for learners who are new to programming and robotics, or who may be not quite ready to jump into a text-based programming language.
This series has been divided into three consecutive sections (described below) to guide you linearly through the tutorials whether you're in the classroom, or DIY-learning at home. We strongly recommend you follow these tutorials in order unless you're an experienced roboticist who is familiar with both BlocklyProp and the ActivityBot Robot.
- Prerequisite(s) - Completing these introductory tutorials is highly recommended before you proceed with the main lesson(s). These tutorials are designed to teach the foundational skills you will rely on as you progress through the tutorial series.
- Main Lesson(s) - This tutorial, or sequence of tutorials, takes you from start to finish through your robotics kit. You will progress through robot construction and programming basics, to autonomous navigation using the sensors and components included in your kit.
- Projects - Once you have completed the main lesson(s), or if you are simply looking for new ideas and activities, give these projects a try! Most will require one or more additional hardware components not included in the main robot kit. These items are usually available through our ecommerce website www.Parallax.com. Check the parts list for each project for details on what you’ll need.
