Lesson 6 Worksheet 6.3 – Dance in response to clapping

Using what you have learned in the previous two exercises create a dance routine where the robot responds to your claps.


You will need at least two dance manoeuvres, but you can add as many as you like. The above program has two single action manoeuvres. These two manoeuvers repeat because they are in a loop.

You can also try and add two manoeuvres per clap.


Alternative challenge

If you don’t want to program a dance, then you could create a short obstacle course that the robot drives in response to a clap and then returns in response to a second clap.


How many manoeuvers does your program have?



Describe your robot’s dance or drive manoeuvres.





Fun class activity

Select the best dance routine from the class, and have every student program their robot with it. Then place all the robots together and everyone clap in time to see the robots dance.

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.

We've detected that you are in Australia, so we wanted to let you know that we have changed your settings to view our Australian site, which displays GST inclusive pricing.
