Robot EV3: Operate It!

by

In this final lesson of 4, students will learn how to simulate a warning sound just before the brakes are applied when reversing his/her wheeled robot. Then, students will have fun modifying their team project and presenting to other groups!

Introduction

This is lesson four of four lessons in the project Robot EV3: Build It!, Program It!, Sense It! Operate It! in which students will design, build and create a program for a Lego EV3 robot that can sense its environment and act by making a sound when it is finished.

In order for students to successfully operate their robot students will learn how to:
  1. Build It! (Refer to Lesson 1 - "Robot EV3: Build It!"
  2. Program It! (Refer to Lesson 2 - "Robot EV3: Program It!)
  3. Sense It! (Refer to Lesson 3 - "Robot EV3: Sense It!)

In this lesson, students will learn how to simulate a warning sound just before the brakes are applied when reversing his/her wheeled robot. Students will work in pairs to break down the problem and build towards a solution to successfully complete their program. Then student will have fun modifying their team project!

As a Teacher, I highly suggest that you take pictures and or video clips of your students throughout the lesson. It can serve as an awesome demonstration/model for the final project to share with your students toward the end of this lesson, "Robot EV3: Operate It!"
