The FCC in USA is about to vote to get rid of the net neutrality, letting ISP's censor and throttle websites, and charge extra fees. This would allow ISP's to throttle this site, when they don't like the idea of every student learning about robotics, technologies and generally how to think.

The FCC will end net neutrality on Dec 14th if we don't convince Congress to stop them. Join the Protest and Contact Congress to save net neutrality.

If you are not from USA you should also be alarmed. Similar policies are already in the process of implementation in the other 59 countries in which is used. We should fight for our Internet freedom regardless of where we are from.

Your first program

There must be marked starting line on the floor. Measure and mark second line 50cm (20 inches) away from the first line.

Do several attempts with your robot in order to adjust the distance that it travels.

The idea is to experiment with the software. After you have experimented, we will show you our approach to the task.



Let's set the next task for the robot. Mark the starting position of the robot with an electrical tape or with some kind of a pencil or if you're on the floor just mark the starting position. And try to make the robot move exactly 50 cm if you are in a metric system. Or 20 in if you're in an imperial system. So, try to make the robot move exactly this distance. Take a measuring tape and measure it. So that you know the exact distance. Experiment with the block, run a few programs, try the different options in the software and make the robot move exactly 50 cm. Which is something like this. So, from here to here.
