This versatile robot is constructed out of PASCO Structures components, enabling students to build several different configurations of the StructureBOT (front-wheel steering, rear-wheel steering, with and without the gripper).
The StructureBOT can navigate through a maze, turn in circles, and pick up objects with its gripper. The detailed instructions step the student through building the StructureBOT and learning to program the StructureBOT movement using Blockly coding embedded in PASCO Capstone or SPARKvue software.
The StructureBOT has a huge advantage over other conventional robot kits. Since the Blockly coding is embedded in PASCO Capstone and SPARKvue software, students can view and record the position and velocity of the BOT stepper motors in a live graph in the software. They can also view output variables from their code in digital displays so they can associate what motion the BOT is performing with sections of their code. This helps them trouble-shoot their code.
