Creating Loops
/* Code generated by RoboBlockly v2.1 */
/* Problem Statement: 
    Drag a  driveDistance  code block from the code block
    section to the Workspace and position it just inside
    the  repeat  loop code block, until it clicks into place.
    Then do the same for a  turn  code block and a  blinkLED 
    code block, so that you end up with the  driveDistance ,
     turn , and  blinkLED  code blocks all inside the  repeat 
    loop. Adjust the argument values for each code block,
    including the loop, so that when you run the code the robot
    traces out a square, blinking 3 times at each corner. Then
    try changing the angle value to 30 degrees (instead of 0
    degrees) for the  turn  code block at the beginning of the
    code, and run the code again. You should get a square
    tilted at that 30 degree angle. Try other angles, blinks,
    square sizes, and trace colors by changing the various
    argument values. Have fun!

Problem Statement:

Drag a  driveDistance  code block from the code block section to the Workspace and position it just inside the  repeat  loop code block, until it clicks into place. Then do the same for a  turn  code block and a  blinkLED  code block, so that you end up with the  driveDistance ,  turn , and  blinkLED  code blocks all inside the  repeat  loop. Adjust the argument values for each code block, including the loop, so that when you run the code the robot traces out a square, blinking 3 times at each corner. Then try changing the angle value to 30 degrees (instead of 0 degrees) for the  turn  code block at the beginning of the code before the  repeat  loop, and run the code again. You should get a square tilted at that 30 degree angle. Try other angles, blinks, square sizes, and trace colors by changing the various argument values. Can you add another repeat loop after the first one to draw a second square of different size? Have fun!
