Flowol 4

Programming visually with a flowchart allows the student to focus on the logic of their solution rather than the syntax of a written program. Flowol supports many programming elements:

  • Sequences of instructions
  • Branching using decisions
  • Loops (infinite, or based on a condition or count)
  • Variables and simple variable manipulation
  • Sub-procedures (parameters optional)
  • Multiple parallel threads

Robotics is an ever growing and developing field. Are robots going to catch on in the home? Will robots be providing service and care to seniors? Might your students have careers designing and programming such robots?

Flowol 4 can control Mimics (on screen simulations)
