The Robotiblockly drawers contain all of the Imagine Robotify Blockly blocks students need to build programs in the workspace and control robots in the robot feed. The drawers follow the color scheme of the blocks, which makes it easy for students to navigate. Drawers that are grayed out are unavailable and not needed for the particular task.
