The Dot Finder – A Wonder Workshop Program

Hello Wonder League Fanatics! Today I bring you another Wonder Workshop blog! This one contains a program which makes Dash go out and search for Dot, then approach her when he finds her. This program can be made in both Blockly and Wonder.

The main cues in this program are the Dot Seen, and the Obstacle Seen. These cues help Dash reposition and adjust himself so he is looking directly at Dot when he stops.

Here’s the program in Blockly :

Here’s the program in Wonder :
You can download it from the Wonder Cloud using this key : mxyl

Both the Blockly and Wonder programs do the same thing. I included them both here so you can build it in the program you are most used to – but since Wonder is required for the Wonder League Competition, I recommend trying it.

If you want to see my build – check out the video below.

Thanks for reading and following along. Remember, if you’re not following already, be sure to click the ‘follow’ button in the bottom right so you can get notified when a new post on my blog is out, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

EDUCATIONAL SUMMARY:

This blog and the it’s components were part of Aiden’s 6th grade homeschool lessons. In 5th grade, Aiden competed in the first annual Wonder Workshop Robotics Competition and placed 1st in his state, and 5th place nationally. Wonder Workshop reached out to Aiden and asked him to be a student mentor for the second annual competition. Aiden was asked to create two tutorials videos about Dash and Dot that would help new students grasp some of the basics. This is one of the tutorials he created.
