The Beegide Finch

The Beegide Finch is a species of bird native to the land of Nehvurtuebriet. The Beegide is very sensitive to light and doesn’t like it when people move it from its natural habitat. Unfortunately, they are temperamental and get angry very fast when lighting conditions are not just right. Your job is to write code for your Finch that will allow it to better communicate with you. You will need to get it to tell you if the light is too dark, too bright, or acceptable.

Indiana Finch

Indiana Finch is trapped in the Nest of Doom! He can’t find his way out of the maze and needs your help. Use the Finch methods to help Indiana Finch out of the maze!

Level 1: Turn the Finch's wheels on and off to move it through the maze. You do not need to use the Finch's sensors.

Level 2: Use the Finch's sensors to move through the maze. Rather than moving forward for a specific period of time, the Finch should move forward until the sensors detect some feature in the maze, such as a wall.

License To Fly

You have just earned a new job at the Finch Flying Test Center. Your task is to create a program that will test the Finch’s ability to complete multiple tasks and earn its “license to fly.”

The program should test the Finch’s capability to accelerate in x, y, and z directions - if all are greater than or equal to 1, then the Finch passes the test (the user must help the Finch with this task!). Also, the program should evaluate the Finch’s ability to detect obstacles in front of him/her.
