17. Colour everything

Can we guide the robots around the board in such a way that they make a drawing with their tracks? In this activity, we play with coding and pixel art, which is forming images by colouring in the boxes on a chequered board, like pixels on a screen.

Required material: CodyRoby cards, a chequered board and a pawn. To colour in the boxes use pieces of paper to place on the boxes, or colour the boxes in with markers.


Is it possible to draw the two hearts like in the final part of the video by guiding the robot on all the necessary boxes without ever passing twice on a box?
