Students will create a crowdfunding campaign explaining the need for a line following robot. Students will build a prototype/model of their line following robot by modifying the GoPiGo.

Objective: Students create a crowdfunding campaign explaining the need for a line following robot. Students will build a prototype/model of their line following robot by modifying the GoPiGo.

Each Lesson includes the following elements:

  • Background information & resource links (some to share with students & some for teachers)
  • Introductory questions & information to share with the students
  • Step-by-step procedure for the project
  • Student handouts, charts, worksheets
  • Closure exercises
  • Assessment questions
  • Extension

Time Requirement: 4-6 class periods

Coding:

  • The Lesson uses Scratch, a beginner drag-and-drop programming language developed at MIT. It is perfect for beginners, and no prior experience is expected or required.
  • For students with more advanced programming skills, there is room to expand upon the lesson provided to do more sophisticated activities with the sensors as well as data collection and analysis techniques. Students can also use Python, Java, C++ and Node.js to program the GoPiGo robot car, but this curriculum is designed to teach and incorporate Scratch.

Recommended Grades: 6-8

Main Audience: Classroom

Self-Paced? No

This lesson comes in the form of a one-time downloadable PDF with a license for 1 classroom. If you are interested in using this lesson school-wide or district-wide, please contact us for that pricing at DexterEd (at) dexterindustries.com.

What else will I need that does not come with this curriculum?

  • GoPiGo Base Kit
  • Raspberry Pi (works with any version of the Raspberry Pi)
  • Wi-Fi Dongle (requires our custom Wi-Fi Dongle, even for the Pi 3, because our software is not yet totally compatible with the onboard wifi)
  • microSD Card (with Dexter Industries custom software – available for purchase pre-loaded with our software or else you can download and image the cards yourself)
  • Ethernet Cable
  • Power Wall Adapter
  • Line Follower
  • 8 AA batteries (not included, we recommend rechargeable) for each robot
  • A computer with wifi & an internet connection and a web browser (Chrome preferred, but use Firefox if using touch-screen laptops)
  • Black Electrical Tape
  • Materials for modifying the GoPiGo (Ex. pipe cleaners, tape, construction paper, cardboard)
