Fusion Robot Fun – Converting from blockly to Python.

The computer language Python is currently one of the most in-demand languages used in Industry (click here or here), so it is a good skill to have in your  CV.  These tutorials will help you learn how to use Python to control your Fusion Robot. The Schools we assist tell us that they plan to first introduce Fusion Robotics by using the computer language Blockly. They then plan to later upgrade to Python. These tutorials start quite gently by converting tiny Blockly examples into Python, and then continue by using Python alone.

These tutorials are mainly aimed at students who have previously followed our Blocky tutorials for Fusion Robots, but it also can be used by students who have had no Blockly background, as we also revise Blockly during some of these tutorials. 

This course will probably always be under construction, with new tutorials being added when we have time. In the meanwhile, we have a 28 page pdf overview of our progress so far available for download here. Enjoy! ?
