Codey Rocky: Weather Reporter Panda (Advanced) (Gr. 6-8)
In this lesson, students will learn how to create a weather reporting robot using Codey Rocky and the Internet of Things (IoT). Students will begin by adding a new extension to mBlock 5 and connecting their Codey Rocky to a specific wifi. Students will go on to create their code that shows the maximum temperature of different major cities around the world. Students will use if statements to show if the temperature is hot or cold by setting definitions. Finally, students will create their own variable to show the maximum temperature of their city on both Codey’s LED screen and on the mBlock interface through the Sprite.
- By the end of this lesson, students will use operator blocks to connect Codey Rocky to a chosen Wi-Fi
- By the end of this lesson, students will learn how to create their own variables in mBlock 5 and incorporate these variables into their code
- By the end of this lesson, students will show the maximum temperature of their city on Codey Rocky’s LED screen and on mBlock 5 through the use of a Sprite
