Calibrate Your Ozobot
What does this mean? Ozobot’s “eyes” (the sensors) are very sensitive to the surrounding light. So much so that, if the paper changes or if you go closer to the window, it affects how Ozobot sees what’s underneath. To let Ozobot know what its surroundings are, you need to calibrate: Turn on the ozobot, place the ozobot on the black dot, and wait for it to turn green.
Challenge 1: Coding with Ozobots
Use your Ozobot reference chart, and your Coded Practice Sheet.
Mini challenge: In any of the slots, mark (blue, black, blue) and (red, black, red) and (blue, green, blue). What happens?
Place Ozobot on the line and see how the Ozobot understands the colors. Match up the code wit the reference sheet.
Write the correct code on the sheet.
Challenge 2: States of Matter
Each group was given chart/butcher paper, a challenge card, markers, and an ozobot.
Each group was given a copy of the story, and were to fill-in the proper ozobot codes for the correct state of matter. After completing the rectangle code blocks, then they tested their ozobot with the proper codes.
Challenge 3: Mapping Skills
Each group was given a challenge card. They had to create a map of our school, then program Mr. Oz to go to difference places based on what was on their challenge card.
