Master uCode with 5 Pro Tips from our STEM Experts

uCode is a free web programming environment that takes machine learning to the next level. Students of all levels can program using block-based coding along with dual text-based programming. uCode allows students to go above and beyond programming a physical UKIT robot with digital game and animation creation, utilizing real-time AI blocks, and controlling virtual robots in a 3D environment. Enhance your uCode utilization even further with these pro tips curated from our team of STEM experts.

 

Pro Tip #1

Example codes for builds can be found through the uKit EDU app or in uCode. In order to run these successfully, ensure the robot has been built correctly.

 

Pro Tip #2

uCode provides three programming environments: Stage Mode, Upload Mode, and 3D. Reach students at home without the need for a physical robot by having them work with virtual robots in the 3D environment.

 

Pro Tip #3

uCode is a free programming platform that can be used with and without the use of UKITs. View our free resources and activities to get started with uCode today.

 

Pro Tip #4

uCode offers integrated AI blocks that enables students use object recognition, drawing recognition and other AI tools to projects. To start using AI blocks, add the AI extension from the local extension menu.

 

Pro Tip #5

The uKit Explore microcontroller is also Arduino compatible and can be programmed using C++. To access the Arduino IDE from uCode, connect the board in Upload mode and select the Arduino icon over the programming window – the first time you do this you’ll be prompted to download the Arduino IDE.
