Tiny Drummer 4

  • Coding is similar
  • If you haven’t yet, I encourage you to check out the free video courses
  • How to set up your device, basic programming
  • Show code of Tiny Drummer 1 with BirdBlox
  • Build code of Tiny Drummer 2 live with BirdBlox
  • Share Makecode codes in links below (share how similar this would be without a HB)
    • Make sure you note what angle represents “up” for your drummer’s arm, and what angle represents “down.” (It will be different than the angles represented in the video).
    • If your arm is not oriented correctly, you can pop the servo horn off and physically reposition it, or fix it through coding.
