This is the second round with Hummingbird robotics in Creator's Studio. I've modified the unit, providing less upfront instruction in programming. While I cover the basic idea of creating an expression, and show samples of sequences in CREATE LABS visual programmer, students must determine what their own program needs are in order to accomplish their task. The unit will last from four to five sessions. Currently students are building expressions and testing out sequences, while starting the actual build process for their project. For more detail on project requirements, see:
Introduction to Hummingbird
Here are pics of the finalists in our 3D design challenge. We will discuss current designs as a whole group and offer suggestions for further revision and refinement.
