Is there a scratch command to be able to program it to go a specific number of steps?
There is no Scratch command to move steps. Do you mean rotations?
or be able for it to turn a specified number of degrees?
There is no scratch command on how to do this. However, I think one of the lessons that are coming will cover how to use encoder readings to control how far wheels rotate.
Do you think you're just confused about how to use Scratch? Do you have a recommendation on how we can explain this better?
I think our Kickstarter advertising is/was fair. If you're having trouble with a mission, we can try to help you specifically with it. Also please note that the missions are, as promised on the KS, coming out monthly. Not all of the programming functions have been explained, but will be explained throughout the course of the missions. That's pretty much what we promised, and I think we're doing a very good job of keeping our promises!
