Hacking The Finch
The Finch is an advanced robot for computer science education that operates on a drag and drop interface called Snap! As an introduction to computer programming, the open source software allows enthusiasts to innovate by learning simple code in a graphical user interface. In this presentation, students will execute commands in Snap! to navigate the Finch through an obstacle course while demonstrating the features and functions of speed, steering, LED lights, and more! Be sure to tune in to this session to learn about the Finch and how its role in computer science education can be applied to everyday life.
