Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA)
1A-AP-12: Develop plans that describe a program's sequence of events, goals, and expected outcomes.
How Standard is Achieved: In Lab 1 during Play Part 2, students have the ability to create and make their own project with their groups. Beyond simple commands, students must authentically look at how to solve the problem of going over the bridge through code.
In Lab 2 during Play Part 2, students complete their final challenge by using VEXcode 123 to move their 123 Robot through an obstacle course.
In Lab 3 during Play Part 2, students use VEXcode 123 to get their 123 Robot from one end of the city to the other using commands such as forward, backward, left, and right.
