This workshop engages students who understand basic programming concepts to program a 2-D interface using Java to make the Finch Robot interactive using its light, proximity, and temperature sensors. Finch is a small robot designed by BirdBrain Technologies to inspire and delight students learning computer science by providing them a tangible and physical representation of their code. We recommend students take the Creating Java Programs with Greenfoot workshop prior to Programming the Finch Robot in Greenfoot. Greenfoot is a free educational Java development environment (JDE) created at the University of Kent. NOTE: A Finch robot is required for this workshop they can be purchased from BirdBrain Technologies.
