I attended the Logo Summer Institute in Pflugerville, Texas hosted by the University of Texas at Austin. I attend through the WeTeach_CS Collaborative at the University of Houston. This workshop provided a lot of valuable information and resources that I hope to incorporate with my coding and robotics club.

I wrote the following programs using my iPad.
This first program has two sensors which each serve a different purpose. Sensor 1 detects if there is an object within 10 cm, if there is an object, it will turn; Sensor 2 detects if there is a drop, if the distance from sensor 2 becomes greater than 10 cm, the robot will turn.
In the following program, the robot moves with the tilt of the iPad. Tilt the iPad forward and the robot will go forward, tilt the iPad to the right, the robot will turn right, etc.
Hardware: Micro:bit, laptop or iPad
