My Robotics class was busy for the past few days working in SNAP! to program the Finches to perform various tasks. We started off easy with some pre-programmed sequential instructions like the following:
We then quickly moved up to more interactive non-linear / non-sequential programming which allowed us to create basic driving functionality. Here were the fruits of their labors:
The students seemed to have fun working with the Finches and it gave them the flexibility to focus solely on the automation programming without having to also worry about the engineering design.
Special thanks to Birdbrain Technologies for loaning us the Finches this year for the students to work with!
