In this Unit, you will explore the difference between driver control and autonomous challenges, as you learn to drive the Clawbot and code it to sort and stack cubes in the Cube Collector competition!
Visit the Teacher's Portal for teacher support materials and videos about the content and facilitation of the Cube Collector Lessons.
Lesson 1: Introduction
In this Lesson, you will be introduced to the Cube Collector competition, build the Clawbot, and get ready to code.
Lesson 2: Driver Control
In this Lesson, you will learn about using the Driver Control program on the IQ Brain so that you can drive the Clawbot to stack and score cubes on the Field and participate in the Speed Stack Challenge.
Lesson 3: Coding for Autonomous Movements
In this Lesson, you will learn about coding your robot for autonomous movements, including how to plan the path of your robot. Then, you will create a VEXcode IQ project to score and stack cubes in the Coding for Cubes autonomous challenge.
Lesson 4: Using Multiple Programs (Autonomous & Driver)
In this Lesson, you will learn about customizing driver controls and how you can use the Controller and VEXcode IQ to optimize your driver strategy for competing in a challenge with driver control and autonomous runs.
Lesson 5: Cube Collector Competition
In this Lesson, you will apply your learning from the previous Lessons to compete in the Cube Collector competition!
Lesson 6: Conclusion
In this Lesson, you will reflect on the Unit and identify connections between what you have done and a related STEM career.
