Marking the middle school’s 8th lesson in a 24 course Intergenerational AI Learning Online Program series run by Taiwan’s Ministry of Education, the event was a culmination of the past year-and-a-half of teamwork between Renai Junior High School and VIA.

Parrot Chasing Ball: Learn How to Code with Blocks

Parrot Chasing Ball is a mini-program that instructs a parrot to chase a ball according to the color detected by VIA Pixetto vision sensor. If VIA Pixetto detects the color red, the parrot chases the red ball. If the color yellow is detected, the parrot will chase the yellow ball. It's a fun and easy way to introduce color recognition in a fun and graphical way.
