The BirdBlox app enables students ages 9 -14 to program Hummingbird and Finch 2.0 robots. Students drag together blocks to build programs that control the robot motors and lights, and they can use sensors to make the robot respond to its environment. Whether they are programming Finch to complete a maze or building a Hummingbird robot dog that barks when someone is nearby, the only limit is their imagination!

BirdBlox is a complete block-based programming language that is specifically designed for physical computing. BirdBlox contains blocks specific to each robot, as well as control structures, math and logic operators, support for variables and lists, and more. BirdBlox makes it easy for beginners to explore and get started, while also enabling students to create more complex programs as they learn more about computer science.

Wonderful app to control Finch or Hummingbird

This app lets you control the Finch or the Hummingbirdbit and Hummingbird Duo with a Bluetooth adapter.
I use it with students and with my own projects. It’ll feel familiar to students who know Scratch or Snap.
With one tap of the code you can see it work. It is wonderful for rapid prototyping and for easy coding of robots.
