  4. CARL 6 robots come with basic code see the example on this site under code
  5. Download the Arduino IDE which allows you to code the robot
  6. Start coding your robot to do the clock dance,  here is an example of a clock code,   clock code
  7. Open your video setting on your phone, turn to the lowest setting
  8. Video your dance
  9. Ask your librarian teacher to use the upload feature on this site
  10. Cut and paste the code into wordpad and save in the RTF format and upload it as well
  11. If that upload does not work:  Send to uploadcodemyrobot@gmail.com
  12. With your Student or team Name, School, copy of your code, name of teaching librarian.
  13. All students will receive participation awards, and your school is entered in winning classroom sets of CARL 6’s

We ask all schools to submit the dancing robot challenge before completing the MAZE challenge.  They can be completed at the sametime if you are new to CodeMyRobot.

Those who complete the MAZE by May 30th will get another challenge.  both challenges will end June 15th.

  1. Building on your dancing coding experience, complete coding for the MAZE then upload the video and code
  2. How to create the maze,  there are two examples on https://twitter.com/codemyrobot and this link
  3. Using thin white pieces of paper make the walls of the maze.
  4. Place your robot at the beginning of the maze

  7. Open your video setting on your phone, turn to the lowest setting
  8. Video your challenge and calculate your time
  9. Ask your librarian teacher to use the upload video, time and code ,  With your Student or team Name, School, copy of your code, name of teaching librarian. and time.
  10. All students will receive participation awards, and your school is entered in winning classroom sets of CARL 6’s
