Cricket Tutorial — Introduction to Motor Commands

Below is the Handy Cricket. Let's get started by learning how to use the motors.

The first time the Virtual Cricket loads there will be a short delay.
Please be patient.

Let's “plug” a motor into the Cricket Motor A output. To the bottom right of the Cricket, click on the square labeled “Click for Output A,” then choose “Motor Output.” The square should show an image that looks like this. If you have any trouble, you can click on the button “Plug in Motor A” next to Output A.

Do you have it? Now you can make the motor turn on. Here's the Cricket Logo command to turn Motor A on for 1 second: Each time you click the button, the Cricket turns on the motor for 1 second. Also, the motor output LED turns on green.
