As in the previous tutorial, we will send our Fusion Robot into “Space” around the (Tasmanian Apple) “Moon”. Up until now, we have been using “turns” inherited from the original “Basic Blockly” commands. This meant we could only have three types of turns, 45 degrees, 90 degrees and 180 degrees. Python (and Intermediate Blockly) give us more versatility. Let us use this increased versatility of Python to investigate if a change in methodology would allow us to achieve an even more efficient “Around the Moon” program. The video below investigates this possibility.
The message that comes out of this is that, if we have the luxury of time for a little thought beforehand, we can often get a better result… 🙂
