Fusion Uses the Basic Blockly Commands FB6a

“Around the Moon” is a Challenge we have used with Middle School students. The Robot has to leave a pretend “Earth”, go into “space” around the (orange in this case!) moon, and land back right on top of the “Earth”. This video is a “proof of concept” video that shows that a solution to this Challenge is possible using only the Basic Blockly commands. It demonstrates that a tutorial could be written for this Challenge using only the simplest level of commands available in Fusion’s Blockly. A “Moon/Earth” image suitable for use in this lesson is available for free download, it is sized for printing on an A3 printer. Our original arena is here. You could also reuse the arena that we have already used in the “Alien” tutorial, a pdf version of this arena is available for download.
