One potential mini project to use in conjunction with the Robot Diaries tool kit is more of a formative assessment than a project. It consists of programming a sequence of LED lights pre-installed in a board. On the board would be items that need to be matched and students would write the code to match the correct items. The code would then be connected to the hummingbird one group at a time to check for accuracy (both for correctness is content and in programming). This would work especially well in topics where chronology is important, such as history, or sequence, such as science.
