Hour of Code: Students Introduced to VEX Robotics & ROBOTC Programming
Students got an introduction to VEX robotics and ROBOTC programming during their Hour of Code in Introduction to Engineering Design. Students first connected the limit switch, motor, and LED to the VEX cortex. Then they wrote a program in ROBOTC to use the limit switch to control the motor and the LED. When they pressed the limit switch the first time, the motor would start and the green LED would turn on. When they pressed the limit switch a second time, the motor would stop and the green LED would turn off. Students really enjoyed the combination of programming and robotics.
