Minutes of Code - Smart Letter Delivery Activity
In order to cultivate students' computational thinking and use programming to solve problems, we designed a smart letter delivery system as a lunchtime activity using Minutes of Code. During the activity, students act as programmers at a post office and design how to use an iPad and mBot to deliver letters to the different destinations.
During the process, the students were engaged, patient and perseverant. Through repeated tests and adjustments to the control of the mBot car, they achieved great success. A large number of students said the activity was interesting and hoped to attempt higher-level tasks.
