Have students work on the following activities in small groups (ideally 2-3 students per robot).

Encourage students to share tablet and robot time. Have them establish and rotate through roles such as:

  • Lead Programmer: Holds the tablet and manipulates the code.
  • Robot Wrangler: Retrieves and resets the robot after every program attempt.
  • Documentarian: Records group results, thoughts, and progress. Illustrates group designs and ideas.

When students work together while coding, they're able to help each other identify mistakes and develop creative solutions!
