Programming Robots (Girl Scout Troop)

Robots are simple machines made of many different parts that are programmed to run automatically. Programmers are the engineers that create step-by-step instructions, or algorithms, that tell robots how to understand and respond to their environment. Start by engineering a simple algorithm then learn about programming on paper, a “robot” Brownie friend, and on a device.
