Lab 1 - Design a Project

**Main Focus Question**: How do I Engineer and Build?

Students will build the Code Base robot and create a VEXcode GO project that navigates it through two challenge courses.

Lab 2 - Design a Float

**Main Focus Question**: How do I design and construct an attachment for the Code Base robot?

Students will use the engineering design process to create a float made of a multitude of materials.

Students will use the iterative process to test that the materials stay on the float while moving forward, reverse, left and right.

Lab 3 - Float Celebration

**Main Focus Question**: How do I Test and Present?

Students will test the float making sure all materials stay on while the float is in motion.

Students will construct the parade route meeting specified criteria.

Students will present their float in a classroom parade.

Lab 4 - Measuring Distance

**Main Focus Question**: How far do we need to travel?

Students measure the distance the robot would travel with one turn of a wheel.

Students calculate the number of times that the wheels of the Code Base will need to turn in order to drive the robot the exact length of the parade route.

Students test the solutions to their calculations by applying them in a VEXcode GO project.

Lab 5 - Turning

**Main Focus Question**: How do we calculate the distance of a turn circle?

Students will calculate the circumference of one 360 degree turn of the robot.

Students calculate the number of wheel turns needed to enter correct values into the inputs of [Spin for] blocks.

Students create a project for their Code Base to precisely travel a parade route that includes a 180 degree turn.
