Learning Math and CS with Robotics
Robot Autonomous Vehicle (grade 6+)
  • Lessons for new concepts
  • Activities for homework




Guide Linkbot as a robotic autonomous vehicle (RAV) through a grid of streets! In this series of activities you will learn how to control a Linkbot robot and help it navigate successfully on a journey through a test track of criss-crossing streets. You will also learn about one of the most important concepts in computer programming--loops--and get a little practice using the Pythagorean theorem to traverse triangular paths.

When you have completed the Hour of Code(tm) "Robot Autonomous Vehicle" activities, or finished working with them, go to code.org/api/hour/finish to get a certificate and share your achievement!
