Learning CS and Math 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 to get a certificate and share your achievement!

Hardware (optional):
