CyberPi: Game Controller (Gr. 6-8)
In this lesson, students will turn the CyberPi into a game controller by combining device programming and stage programming in mBlock. Students will examine example programs to discover how the CyberPi can control the movement of a sprite. Then, through pair programming, students will modify an existing game to program a CyberPi game controller.
- Differentiate between stage programming and device programming.
- Examine and describe how an existing project functions.
- Create a program in mBlock using the CyberPi to control sprites.
- Modify an existing program.
