mBot E4 - Conditionals: Afraid of the Dark!


Concepts: Students take conditionals a step further and are introduced to IF-THEN-ELSE statements and defining conditions using an mBot sensor. Activity: Students create an algorithm that uses the ambient light sensor on the mBot. When the lights are on, the mBot does a calm sequence of commands. However, when the lights go out the mBot goes crazy with a sequence of erratic commands!
