Microcontrollers need to be programed. Their native language is called assembly and its pretty much specific to each micro. I would think the instructor would explain all this. The alternatives to asm is high level languages like basic,pascaL. and c.

The best advice I can give you is to keep it simple. Dont bite off more than you can chew.
The robot you describe will need to control stepper motors (see PWM- pulse width modulation) for locomotion, and at the simplest, switches to indicate contact with an object. Read the data sheet for the micro tp get an idea how to do all this.

Swell tynx for that... i have an idea.. of building a saucer using a fan for it to fly... and another 4 small fans to move it forward, backward and sidewards.. each 4 fans have their own sensors that when it sense it is going to hit something it would automaticaly turns the fan on to blow itself away from the object of collision and when it sense nothing it will turn the fan off, just like the principle of "obstacle avoiding robot" but the thing is i am not use to make programms for AT89S51 and AT89C51........
