In this activity, you will use the keys on your computer to control the Finch. This means that the Finch will operate by remote control, rather than acting on its own (autonomously).

Your program should make the Finch do these things:

  1. Move forward when the up arrow is pressed.
  2. Move backward when the down arrow is pressed.
  3. Turn left when the left arrow is pressed.
  4. Turn right when the right arrow is pressed.

If you have time, use other keys to make the Finch buzz or to change the beak color! You can also create a tape path that the Finch must follow.
