Today we went to the year 8 class rooms to see there create projects. I went around looking at all the things that the year 8’s had made and one of the things that i liked the most was Ben Searl’s project because he did something that i thought i did’nt think anybody would of done.
In the last session of scratch we had to go around testing peoples games and writing evaluations about there game. I played Rubens game, Sam’s game and Max’s game. I liked all the game that I had played. The first game is a game that i am still making the game but it is going to be a soccer game. You can pick what team you are out of red teams and blue teams.
The Second game is a game that you have to park a car in the blue zone then you go to the next level. There is 8 levels then you finish the game, the game is very hard and you can get really angry when you play this game.
some feedback that i have got from people that have played my game. For the car parking game, you should put a timer and lives in so when you crash you lose a life. To make it a 2 player game and to make so you have to race to the blue zone to get to the next level.
It was fun doing scratch for a term and I learnt lots of things that I didn’t think that i was going to do. It was hard at first because I didn’t what to do but after a few lesson i started to make some games. Scratch was one of the most fun things that i had done for this term.
Today Robotics we finish our robots. Now that we have finished our robots we have to take them apart.The top part of the program makes the robot go forward then turn in a 90 degree angle then go forward again. The bottom part of the program does the same thing but it is a slower version, The bottom part is if you want the robot to go slower around corners.This is our robot, our robot can go over mini hills of Lego pieces and over laptops. I liked making the robot cause it was hard to make and we thought it was different to all the other people.
On the holidays i went to Ballarat for the last weekend, i went to Ballarat for a basketball tournament. We had to play four games on the Saturday and 2 games on the Sunday. The games were two 20 minute halves. It was a though day and we all got really tired when we got back to the motel. After all the normal games had finished we went it the semi final against a team called Saints. Saints were a good team and it was a tough game to win. We lost by 7 points in the semi. It was a great weekend and a tough weekend.Our team had a great time in Ballarat.
Today in Microwrolds we had to share our quizs in a group of 3 or 4. I was in a group with Reuben and Zoe. The quizs that we showed were really good and they had a lot of detail. When we found our groups we got started. Reuben went first, His quiz was really good and the question were about Rube Goldberg Machines and the things that you need to use. Then I showed my quiz, Some of the feed back was, If you do it again you say what sport it is because I didn’t know what sport it was. Then Zoe showed her quiz, Zoe’s quiz was about animals the questions were difficult and it was a challenge to get answer right.
