Lesson: EV3 - "Moving Straight"

The goal of this lesson is to have students write their first EV3-G program and learn to use most of the parameters of the Move and Motor blocks. This lesson uses the "Moving Straight" video from the EV3 Trainer (a.k.a. "Introduction to Programming: LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3") product from Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Academy.

Students will be able to:

1. Write an EV3-G program for a robot to move straight

2. Control the straight movement of a robot through the EV3-G Move block parameters

3. Explain the role of each parameter in the Move and Motor blocks

4. Calculate the required Move and Motor block parameters for a desired movement
