 +| **Age group** | Year 2 to Year 4 (ages 8 to 10) |
 +| **Method** | Individual activity |
 +| **Participant to facilitator ratio** | 6:1 |
 +| **Duration** | 45 mins |
 +</​WRAP>​
  
 +====Aim/Key Learning====
 +Program the Pro-Bot to draw a butterfly on a piece of paper.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +====Preparation and Materials Required====
 +  * Pro-Bot for each participant
 +  * A pen that fits the Pro-Bot pen holder
 +  * Paper taped to the table
 +\\ 
 +=====Activity Steps=====
 +====1. Introduction====
 +**Time:** 10 mins\\ ​
 +Introduce yourself, participants introduce themselves, cover any housekeeping. Explain the aim of the workshop (‘Today we are going program a Pro Bot to draw a butterfly’). Show participants how to program the Pro Bot using the movement and repeat commands. Conduct a brief demonstration of the Pro Bot drawing an object (such as a square). Show participants an pre-drawn example butterfly.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +====2. Experiment and Explore====
 +**Time:** 30 mins\\ ​
 +Participants attempt to program the Pro Bot to draw the butterfly. When the Pro Bot makes a wrong move, the facilitator should replace the piece of paper.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +====3. Evaluation and Closing====
 +**Time:** 5 mins\\ ​
 +At the end of the session, thank everyone for their participation and team work.\\ ​

 +  * Each wing is 9 cms high and 3 cms wide
 +  * The body is 5 cms high and 4 cms wide
 +  * The neck is 1 cm long
 +  * Each side of the head is 2 cms
 +
 +There are multiple ways this can be achieved with the Pro-Bot and the code below is only one way.
 +
 +Starting at the top left corner of the left wing and facing right, the following code can be used:
