Scratch programming for ALLBOT
The Scratch for ALLBOT plugin makes it possible to operate your ALLBOT very easily by using the scratch graphical programming software. The user can utilize all standard scratch function blocks, and custom blocks to control the ALLBOT in order to let it walk, chirp, turn and so on.
Scratch is known to be a very educational tool for children and young adults to take the first steps towards programming. Using the ALLBOT in combination with Scratch will also help visualize what you have created in Scratch. This way, children will understand how very applicable programming just is.
Scratch for ALLBOT is available in English, Dutch, French, German and Spanish!
Go to manuals.velleman.eu to download the plugin and get started with Scratch for ALLBOT.
