Here's some links to workshop materials. Since this is a new module, resources are being trialled and added. The idea is that you work through the worksheets at your own pace. I've tried to chunk the material into weeks (large blue squares). The 'Solutions' are short movie-clips of the robot behaving, when coded correctly.
