The Full Story


LEGO EV3 Programming

SmartLab students are challenged to build and program a robot with sensors. Robots use sensors to collect information about their environment in order to respond in an informed way.  Robots use sensors to collect information. This information directs the behavior of the robot. 

One can compare robotic sensors to our own set of senses: touch, smell, hearing, taste, and vision. Without these information inputs, one would not be able to work effectively in and with one's environment. The same goes for robots.

Microsoft-Make Code

Microsoft MakeCode Arcade is a retro 2D online game development environment. With a few blocks or lines of code, POP students can create their own custom games for others to play. POP students will try creating a Maze game, a Treasure Hunt, or a Spaceship game – building their favorite Arcade games has never been so easy or fun!

MakeCode's underlying programming language is a subset of TypeScript called Static TypeScript, which omits the dynamic features of JavaScript.

Microsoft MakeCode is an open source platform for creating engaging computer science learning experiences that support a progression path into real-world programming.
