Follow a simple path

If you’ve mastered All the moves, you are ready to follow a path.

Can you get your ChickBot from the start to the end of a path?

If you can use a ruler to work out the distances, can you do a path first time?

Don’t worry if it takes some practise, but aim to measure precisely and write your program carefully. After all, if your robot was on Mars, you have to get it right every time.

Here’s some suggested paths for you to try out. You can draw them on scrap paper or an old newspaper with a big marker pen.

Most of the time we are using yesterdays news paper. But if you’d like, you can click here for the Word document we use to create simple paths. If you have an A3 printer or photocopier you can print out larger paths.
