Resources for teaching with the Parallax Boe-Bot

Clarification by animation, variables table and highlighting of code

When setting up the EscapeCorners.BS2 program, my students generally get the overall idea of counting the bumps and then getting away. But most have a hard time following the meaning of the variables and how they change during the process. This animation provides a deeper and more visual interpretation of Andy Lindsay's Robotics with the Boe-Bot ver 2.0, Chapter 5, Activity #4. Consider assigning this 6 minute video to students prior to your lecture on navigation by tactile sensing.
