Robot RoversExpired

Live virtual sessions held DAILY August 2-6 at 4 pm ET / 1 pm PT and on August 2nd and 3rd also at 2 pm ET / 11 am PT.

What You'll Do:

During this live coding session, Elby is on a mission to find the earring that Kelsey has lost in the space behind her wall. To complete this mission, Elby must first learn how to drive a rover, or robotic vehicle. He’s never driven before, so he can use a little help from our live coders to get those rotation servos spinning. CodeJoy participants will learn the basics of coding rotation motors and learn how to code multiple outputs at once.

Robot Rovers

These sessions can support roughly 50 campers / computer logins. Please register each of your campers, one registration per device, so that we have a good count and do not overload the system. You can provide your campers’ email addresses to send them the session information directly or, for privacy, you can simply use your email address for all campers and distribute the participate live link yourself.
