3. Edison Freestyle

Instructions (Part I): Watch the below video to learn how to program your Edison Robot directly using the EdScratch programming language. 

Instructions (Part II): Click here to to access the EdScratch programming environment. Using what you learned in “Part I” load and implement the demo codes in EdScratch. See the screenshots below for access assistance. Reflect on how the output of your Edison Robot relates to the structure of each code. 

Instructions (Part III): The below screenshot shows the first “demo” code from the previous activity. Write and modify the below code to perform different movements and outputs of your choice. Consider changing the “repeat” frequency, movement direction, speed, LED behavior, etc. 

Instructions (Part IV):  Using your code from “Part III” as a foundation, create, write, and implement a 30 second robot “Freestyle Dance Routine”. Your routine should include varying direction, speed, output, and any other dance “moves” you can imagine. As an extra challenge, reflect on the demo programs and try to incorporate a “light” controlled aspect to your robot’s routine. 

Instructions (Part V): Record a video of your freestyle routine and share it below. Type your first name in the “Subject” area.  A QR code is provided below for ease of upload.
