  ACTIVITY/LESSON SUMMARY: 

Of course, a robot won’t be a robot without a program/code and that is what would give your robot the forth robot characteristic Intelligence. The word “algorithm” may not seem relevant to you, but the truth is that algorithms are all around us. An algorithm is a detailed step-by-step instruction set or formula for solving a problem or completing a task. Programming is a process that leads from an original formulation of a computing problem to executable computer programs using Algorithms. A program could be written in one or more programming language/s, which are the languages used to communicate with the targeted device whether it is a robot or a computer. Microsoft MakeCode is a new method of programming MINDSTORMS EV3 Robots using Scratch-based Blocks and Java Script all online which was first introduced in 2018. The Blocks Language is the one which we would be covering This Language is based on graphical commands or in other words "Blocks", each Block does a particular command including varies variables which could be adjusted. The sequence of the program runs from top to down, starting with the green labelled loop blocks "On Start" and "Forever", and when each block is completed, the next one is started. In this activity all the Motor, Brick, Sensors and Loop Blocks will be explained in details.
