In MRC robotics before we start building the robots we need to learn how to program them! With your MRC partner go onto the following website and together you can start learning how to program yourself! https://studio.code.org/s/express-2018/stage/14/puzzle/1 Keep playing the games until it’s time to program out robots. Now we are going to learn how […]
