Resources for teaching with the Parallax Boe-Bot

Boe-Bot Navigation
Clarification and Demonstration of the Nine Basic Boe-Bot Maneuvers

Students begin their concept of Boe-Bot propulsion with the idea of five motions: still, forward, backward, turn left and turn right. When they start to write code on their own turning results can be surprising. This animation addresses the topic of turns in an organized way so students can code the exact type of turn needed for the situation. The topic pertains to materials in Andy Lindsay’s Robotics with the Boe-Bot ver 2.0, Chapter 4. The video of four minutes is appropriate to assign for homework between chapters 4 and 5.
