Gentleman’s agreement.

A handshake is as old as the street they say. Throughout history that gesture has evolved.

Grab a MeeBot and code your own handshake inspired by the Founding fathers.

Take your first steps in coding by making these MeeBots come up with different handshakes.

The Steps.

Here is my story:

Open Swift Playgrounds and download the MeeBot template.

Tap on See All at the bottom right corner and then navigate to the MeeBot Playground section.

Download the MeetBot Dances template.

Tap on Connect meeBot to connect your robot to your device. Start by teaching him some basic moves. Follow the steps indicated.

Tap Run My Code to see it all in action.

Next, tap on the list icon at the upper left hand corner.

Select “Make Your Own Moves” from the MeeBot Dances list.

Write the code for your handshake.

Observe your result and edit where necessary.

Going Further.

That is a deal! Nice handshake.

This is one of the activities that educators can participate in during The Playground at ISTE.
