Code Teaching

I’ve been teaching students code but its not very efficient and I feel like they aren’t absorbing a lot of the material. I want to make a lesson similar to how they’ve done this on BlackBird.

Many students respond well to project-based instruction with a specific and useful goal. ‘Hello world’ is a trivial example.


What level of prior knowledge do your students have? How much external support do they have outside of the robotics team to help them learn?

they don’t know anything and so far all I’ve been able to teach them with my limited knowledge and time is drivetrain code. I have also had them follow 2 of these BlackBird projects.

Try to figure out what a reasonable scope to attempt with the resources you have is, and stick to that. You can’t force people to learn any faster than they can teach themselves, as a rule.
