Robotic Series: Programming with mBot using Scratch
mBot is an education robotic kit with a friendly and technological appearance. It can drive around like a car, avoid obstacles, follow a line, flash colourful LEDs, play music using an octave of notes and understand when it’s lifted up.
Venue: Toa Payoh, Singapore (Braddell MRT)
Duration: 3 Hours
Schedule : Choose you own date
Course Fee: SGD99
The programming software to program mBot is called mBlock, an open-source developing platform which is similar to Scratch.
SCRATCH is a programming language designed for children who want to learn about computer programming. It was created with the purpose of teaching them the concepts of programming at an early age and helps develop their creative abilities that are needed to invent their own stories, animations, music, games and more. The best part of learning to program using SCRATCH is that it’s not necessary to write code, you only need to be familiar with the blocks or instructions in the Scratch tool. These blocks; which have default behaviors assigned to them, can be selected, dragged and assembled to create full programs, presentation and games.
The course is divided into four (4) parts.
Constructing the robot and controlling it using the remote and the app.
Exploring educational games in the app, which teaches mBot programming principles.
Diving into programming using mBot visual, block-based programming software, mBlock
Getting to know mBot extra construction sets and introducing extra sensors.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
Understand the fundamentals of coding and robotics
Write and run Scratch programmes
Program the mBot robot
Appreciate how sensors is applied and its impact in our daily lives
Search for references or activities on the Internet
