  • For the remainder of the year we will be using the book “Learning Computing with Robots”

  • Text is on the website in today’s homework section

  • You will need to read!

Materials continued
Materials- continued

  • Scribbler Robots

    • The Scribbler is a fully programmable, intelligent robot with multiple sensor systems that let it interact with people and objects.

    • It navigates on its own as it explores its surroundings, and then reports back about what it senses using light and sound.

  • Fluke Card

  • Bluetooth adaptor


  • Create a “myPython” folder either on your desktop or in “My Docs”

What do you need to know
What do you need to know?

  • Given the Robot, Fluke, Bluetooth adaptor, IDLE software and Bluetooth Manager…

    • What do you need to know to complete the final project?


  • We have nine robots to use for this class.

  • You will need to divide into teams of 3-4.

  • I expect every member of the team to contribute.

  • I will require each member to show me their contributions and be able to explain them to me.

  • Success of your team will depend on your work

Rest of today
Rest of Today

  • Download the book from the Web. This may take a while.

  • Form teams – We will start using the robots tomorrow.

    • Once you have a team you can pick a robot. That robot will your team’s robot for the rest of the year.

      • Don’t break your robot!

      • Don’t lose your Bluetooth dongle.

      • I don’t have spares!
