New to the iRobot Coding Platform? Or are you searching for a compatible curriculum for your classroom? These printable activity cards provide hours of step-by-step lessons and open-ended projects that can be completed in class or self-directed.
CSTA K-12 CS Standards
Model daily processes by creating and following algorithms (sets of step-by-step instructions) to complete tasks.
Model the way programs store and manipulate data by using numbers or other symbols to represent information.
Develop programs with sequences and simple loops, to express ideas or address a problem.
Decompose (break down) the steps needed to solve a problem into a precise sequence of instructions.
Develop plans that describe a program’s sequence of events, goals, and expected outcomes.
Debug (identify and fix) errors in an algorithm or program that includes sequences and simple loops.
Using correct terminology, describe steps taken and choices made during the iterative process of program development.
Create programs that include sequences, events, loops, and conditionals.
Decompose (break down) problems into smaller, manageable subproblems to facilitate the program development process.
Modify, remix, or incorporate portions of an existing program into one's own work, to develop something new or add more advanced features.
Test and debug (identify and fix errors) a program or algorithm to ensure it runs as intended.
Take on varying roles, with teacher guidance, when collaborating with peers during the design, implementation, and review stages of program development.
Describe choices made during program development using code comments, presentations, and demonstrations.
Next Generation Science Standards
Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
