Emphasizes critical thinking (debugging of thinking underlying predictions), self-directed learning, and peer collaboration. Easy to use at any level; can be extended to small program modules.

Polymorphism and Delegation

This folder contains an instructor-led lab where the student will develop using a step-by-step worksheet a solution to a Karel harvesting program using several new robots created using a base robot class.
