Teacher Toolbox icon Teacher Toolbox - Introduction to the Lab

What the Teacher Will Do:

  • Tell students get into their groups with their assigned Workcells.
  • Once students are in their groups, summarize the Lab and explain that it will be introduced via the video.
  • As a whole class, watch the video and answer any questions students may have.

For more information on how to introduce the Lab, go to the V5 Workcell Educator Certification. 

In Lab 5: Using Variables, you will create variables in a VEXcode V5 project and learn how variables are used to store values. You will use those variables to move the arm mounted on the V5 Workcell in precise, incremental movements to draw a 2 inch by 2 inch square. Watch the video below to learn more about what you will be doing in this Lab.
