Juniors will begin their Programming Robots badge. Robots are simple machines made of many different parts that are programmed to run automatically. Programmers are the engineers that create step-by-step instructions, or algorithms, that tell robots how to understand and respond to their environment. We’ll start by engineering a simple machine that helps a robot to land then learn about the robot brain. After, Juniors will create programs for their friends to make images using tangrams and complete an obstacle course before coding on a device.
