Lesson 4 Worksheet 4.2 – Mexican wave

This is a fun class activity that has everyone’s robot executing the same program at a slightly different time. The result is similar to a Mexican wave or choreographed dance.


Use a loop in your program so that the movements repeat.


What you need to do:

Write a short program with a ‘cool’ sequence of robot moves. Don’t forget to use light and sound in your program.

When you’ve written your sequence of moves and tested it have the teacher review and pick the best one from the class.

If yours is picked share your program file with the class. If someone else’s program is picked, when you open their program file add an event wait icon at the beginning. Set the time as the teacher says.

Event wait icon time: __________ Robot number: __________ (for placing robots in order)

Place all the robots in a line in order of delay time with the shortest at the beginning and longest at the end. Everybody now presses play at the same time.

Now stand back and watch the robot performance.


Describe your robots cool moves

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.
