3. Design: The Program

Image of a scroll showing a sample list of robot directions. The list reads: Drive Forward. Turn left. STOP.

Next, you need to design your program. Even if you’ve never written a program before, you can plan the directions you want to give your robot in English. Pretend your robot knows the words forwardbackwardrightleft and stop. How would you give him directions from the garage to the finish line?

Look at your map to double check your directions, and write them on a piece of paper.
