Lesson 6 Worksheet 6.1 – Flash LED in response to clap

Write the following program to have the Edison robot flash the left LED in response to a loud sound such as a clap.


In this program the first event wait icon is not being used to wait for time. Instead the program will not continue from this point until a specific event occurs.

Within the first event wait icon’s properties box select the ‘Event happens’ radio button and then select the event type you think is required to respond to a clap.


What distance can the robot sense your claps?



What is the purpose of the loop icons in this program and what would happen if the loop icons were not there?

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.
