With the Class

  1. Allow your students to remotely connect to the robots on the board.
    1. If you have more students than robots, students can take turns connecting and disconnecting with the Roots, all remotely, in between rounds.
  2. Challenge students to work as a team to code Root to wipe the entire board clear of all dry erase marks using its robot eraser.
    1. TIP: You can find the Eraser Code Block by editing the Marker Block
  3. Play multiple rounds with your classroom! After some practice, how quickly can they clear the board?
