Lesson 2 Worksheet 2.2 – Drive the robot backward

Write the following program to drive the Edison robot backwards. Use the activity sheet or coloured tape on a desk as start and stop markers.


Set the ‘Seconds pass’ (replace?) to an amount of time in seconds to have the robot start from behind the start line and stop before the finish line.

Minimum amount of time is 0.01 seconds.

Maximum amount of time is 327.67 seconds.

Try different amounts of time until your robot drives backwards and stops just before the finish line.


What is the correct amount of time to get your robot from the start to the finish?


Describe what the robot is doing and why?

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.
