tep by Step Preparation

Step 1: Place a large sheet of paper on a hard and flat surface and tape its edges.

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

Step 2: Tape a marker on each side of Dash.

Tip: Make sure the marker tips can touch the paper.

Step 3: Place one of the printed shapes on the large sheet and tape it to secure it in place.

Step 4: Turn on Dash and start using the coding environment to make Dash trace the shape on the paper.

Tip: Traced lines may not be straight and accurate as markers may move in different directions.
