Activities that Do Not Require Accessories or ScratchX Programming

The activities in this section only require the Vorpal Hexapod and Gamepad, and sometimes common household items. After building the robot and gamepad and doing some tests, you should first become familiar with the gamepad functions. Although there are sixty different motions built in to the gamepad, they are organized in a way that makes them fairly easy to learn. Once you have learned the basics, these simple activities will help you learn how to rapidly switch between different leg motions to solve problems!
