Unit 3: Lesson 2: Pick a Path


Students will learn about the different robotic problem-solving programs they can create for their projects and research existing robotic problem solvers.They will then choose a path for their group’s project and brainstorm some features they would like to include in their programs. Finally, students will practice translating their ideas into code in the Cue app, test their programs, and record the results. These activities will be guided by the Design Process Notebooks.
