This program is for Calix - LEGO SPIKE Prime carrying robot. The robot is made to carry an object while following a black line. This is probably one of the first thought that comes to mind when you think of robotics - A robot that can help at home! This robot is made as a first try at this concept. It can move not too heavy objects from one room to the other, following a black line. The program does the following: First it waits for you to put something on the robot and to click the left or right hub buttons. After that it lifts the item a bit and starts following a black line. It follows the line until it sees the same color for more than 3 seconds, thats how the robot knows it has reached the end of the line! After that it rises whatever it is carrying and waits while keeping the object up.

This program makes Tohuru - LEGO SPIKE Prime owl robot move like an owl! What does an owl move like? Well, we decided that an important part of an owl's life is that it holds strong onto a branch! So the first part of the program makes the robot hold onto anything that is between its two wheels. After the owl starts spinning his head and searches for the closest object to him. Then he stares at it menacingly until it moves away!

This program makes Big Wheelster - LEGO SPIKE Prime robot move forward until it bumps into something! This robot has one big wheel controlled by two medium motors, what's interesting is that the motors need to move opposite directions to make the wheel turn! That is why we have made a My Block to controll the robot. It has the option to move for a set rotations or indefinitely(if you put it to 0 rotations). It also has a logic option for the direction that the robot should move, so 1 = forward and 0 = backward.
The program makes the robot turn backwards after it bumps into something, using its back wheels to make sure it doesen't bump there again!

This program makes Swing game - LEGO SPIKE Prime robot move the two people according to the input from the controllers!
The color sensor controller uses the colors on the plate above it to determine how to move the LEGO person. If the color is blue, it moves forward, if its purple, it moves backwards, otherwise - it stops!
The motor controller has a similar program, if it has turned more than 30 degrees forward, the LEGO person moves forward, if it has turned more than 30 degrees backward, the LEGO person moves backward, otherwise - it stops.
The goal of the game is for both LEGO people to reach the center, without the swing tipping to either side! Good luck and have fun!

This program makes Larvy - LEGO SPIKE Prime larva robot move forward indefinitely! The movement of this robot is very interesting as it works like a caterpillar or larvae! The program works by repeating 3 movements every cycle of the loop:
- the front motor rotates for 90 degrees, rising or collapsing its wheels
- the large motor rotates for 90 degrees, contracting or expanding the robot
- the back motor rotates for 90 degrees, rising or collapsing its wheels
You may notice that every movement command does two things, or the same thing but a different direction. That is done using a variable that is either 1 or -1, and that gives the direction that the motors should move. This variable is also used to determine which motor should use full power and which shouldn't so that the robot doesn't break itself!

This program is for Susan and Mark - a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 T-Rex chasing a car. The program makes the T-Rex wait for the car to reach a certain speed, and then attack it. This is made to resemble the T-Rex's said inability to see slow moving things. The goal of the program is to get the car's cable to stretch, while moving it by hand, when its wheels are turning and without the T-Rex noticing. The detection is made using the current power option on the motor rotation sensor.
