Colby Code and Go

Robotics and Control Technology

When POP students begin learning to code, they create a series of step-by-step instructions in a language that computers and robots understand.

A robot is a machine. It is controlled by programs.

The process of figuring out why code doesn’t work like one expect is called troubleshooting. Troubleshooting is an important part of coding, and all coders do it!

Colby Finds Cheese

Robotics and Control Technology

Actions: The “action” code instructs Colby to do one of three random actions – move forward and back, squeak, or chirp (with light up eyes).

Wherever a challenge card has a lightning bolt, Colby must go to that place on the maze and do an action.

Tunnels: Wherever a challenge card has a tunnel, Colby must go through it on his way to get the cheese.


Hour of Code

Programming Using Blocks

  • Code is a language that computers understand.

  • Coding is creating a set of step-by-step commands for a computer.

  • The set of step-by-step commands is called a program.

  • Video games are controlled by programs.

Hour of Code

Sequencing with Angry Birds

Each POP student will develop programming and debugging skills on a computer platform. The block-based format of these puzzles help POP students learn about sequence and concepts, without having to worry about perfecting syntax. 

POP students will:

  • Experiment with standard block-based programming actions such as: clicking, drag and drop, etc.

  • Model proper computer lab behaviors.
