Mission Descriptions:

Mission 1 Bust a MoveIn this first mission, students will become choreographers and program their GiggleBot to dance to their choice of music.

Mission 2 Light Show: Students will try out being lighting technicians and create a snazzy light show by moving the GiggleBot into different orientations.

Mission 3 Robot Pet: The GiggleBot will be transformed into an animal in training. Students will need to control it using a leash controller that they will build and program.

Mission 4 Scaredy Cat: Student zoologists will have just discovered a new species of animal and are investigating its behaviors. This creature reacts when getting close to objects.

Mission 5 Robot Construction Crew: Become the remote operator of a self-driving dump truck that delivers materials. The GiggleBot dump truck will follow a path to the dump site.

Mission 6 Creature Creation: Students will become animatronics engineers for an upcoming movie. Their job is to design and build a new creature to star in the movie.

Mission 7 Giggly GiggleBot: Students are becoming script writers and will create a character for a book or movie and bring it to life through the GiggleBot using a speaker.

Mission 8 Remote Control: Develop some assistive technology by programming a remote controller for the GiggleBot using a second micro:bit. Build a holder, glove, or grip for the micro:bit controller so that someone with limited fine motor control can drive around the GiggleBot.

Mission 9 Car Designer: Explore the world of automotive engineers and transform the GiggleBot into a car loaded with additional features such as headlights, blinkers and/or a backup light.

Mission 10 SecureBot: Students have been put in charge of keeping a treasure safe. They must not let anyone get to the treasure. To do this students will create a security robot.
