Instruction Guide: ESR Line Dancing Robot

Printer-friendly version

Use "The Wave" video to share the idea, then have students develop their own pattern:

1) Assign numbers to each robot.

2) Attached an upward-facing touch sensor on top of Riley Rover to act as a "start" switch

3) Begin everyone's program with Wait-for-Touch and then Wait-for-3-seconds (to allow time to step away from robots before they begin moving)

4) Develop dance routine one-step-at-a-time, using the attached Wave Planning Template as a planning/sketching tool to show direction/duration of each robot for each consecutive Move/Wait step.  You may also have students act out the robot movements for a kinesthetic approach.

5) Begin your custom routine with MoveSteering-for-Time and Wait-for-Time blocks

6) Test routine after each step is developed, with a "3-2-1" countdown to start.

7) Have fun!
