Fusion Approaches an Alien FB5a

We imagine that an Alien has just landed. There is fear that it might be murderous. Why risk human life? Send a robot to look at it!

This freely downloadable tutorial is our first attempt to program Modern Robotics’ Fusion Robot in Blockly. The Robot goes forwards and backwards, under control of the Blockly program we have put into Fusion.

The arena that the Fusion robot uses is available for download. It can be printed if you have access to an A1 printer. A second similar arena, but using slightly different colors, is also available for download. If you do not have a “monster alien” available (making some of these can be a fun and amusing class project), this A4 image wrapped around a soft drink bottle could perhaps suffice.
