Step by Step Preparation

Step 1: Place the printed grid tiles together on a hard and flat surface and tape the edges of each sheet to secure it in place.

Alternative configurations: If you don't have access to a printer, try the following techniques to build a grid map. Just remember that the width and the length of each cell on your grid should be equal to the distance your robot is traveling by each movement.

  • Draw a grid map on a large sheet of paper
  • Use masking tape to build a grid map on the floor

Tip: If you are doing this activity on a tabletop or an elevated surface, block the edges to prevent robots from falling.

Step 2: Once your map is ready, place a few items such as toys on different spots on your map.

Tip: You can use any object, draw or write something on the map.

Step 3: Select a starting point for your robot, place it on the map and start using the coding environment to make your robot move to different items on the map.

Tip: Try to build a mission related to the items you have placed on the map and make your robot to accomplish it.
