Root in the Forest

In this Finish the Story episode, Root is enjoying a day in the forest until something unexpected happens. Complete the starter code to help Root determine what to do next. Learners will use Root's bump sensors to code their responses.

Our Finish the Story series provides a visual prompt for learners to identify a problem and communicate their responses with code. Not only are students refining their listening and problem solving skills, they're also strengthening their skills in programming and coding!
