Don Bradman Book review

Thing about the book and mane keys, mane characters and Don Bradman.

This book is about Don Bradman and his life as well as a boy called Victor McDonald. Victor is a boy that want’s to be a cricket player just like Don Bradman. He got picked for a cricket team at his new school in Sydney.

The thing that I enjoyed about this book 

I enjoyed when Don Bradman hit heaps of century’s and when Victor got into the 11’s team. I also

the significant events in the book?

The significant were the making of Sydney, The Don’s First century, new guard, body line theory, the great depression.

 

Rube Goldberg Machine

 

 

In Design this term we made a Rube Golberg Machine it starts off with Tom Shannon and i just coming up with ideas. This is what we did.

HOW IT WORKS

This is how it works. There is a marble that goes down a tube that is connected to a funnel1. Then it goes through a pipe witch then goes and knocks the domino’s down on the table2. Then it hits this ball connected to string that is tied to a rod witch knocks a ball down off  the table that his the ball resting on the rod and makes the marble go down the hot-wheels track3. Then it goes in a Chupa Chup container falls over and it knocks it over pulling the piece of string4. Witch is connected to marble witch hits the other marble off the table. Pulling a domino off the green hot-wheels track that a marble is resting on and hitting the Jenga block at the end of the hot-wheels track the is connected a piece of string that is connected to a domino witch flings it forward and hits the other domino’s down and pooches a domino off the table witch his a stick stuck on to it, Witch has string connected to it witch pulls the domino witch has a marble resting on it. Then it hits the domino off, witch has string on it witch is connected to a stick witch has a heavy marble resting on it and pulls it away5. Then it drops in a funnel, through a cardboard pipe onto hot wheels track  hitting over Jenga blocks witch hits a Jenga block6. Then it has a piece of string connected to it, and then that pulls a marble off a rod going down a big pipe7. Then rolling onto a bridge (hot wheels track) crossing two tables8. Then going up a ramp up into a pipe.9

THE MATERIALS 

We used string, marbles, domino’s, Jenga blocks, hot-wheel tracks (orange and green), funnels, tape (masking and duct tape), rods, wooden sticks /pattle pop sticks, playing cards, soft mini soccer ball, clear tubes, pipe, big water pipe, cones and goal

THING WE COULD IMPROVE ON

Instead of having the Jenga blocks knock over and hitting the box over we could just have the string connected to the Chupa Chup tub and hits that over and will 100% pull the marbles off the table.

WHAT I LEARNT

I learnt how to set up the domino’s in the way and the sharpness on the turns. I also learnt the placement of the marble and where to put it.

ADDING THINGS ON

This Design seccon we added new thing like going off the table it goes down the funnel and through a tube knocking Jenga blocks over witch is going to hit a Jenga block with string on it. That was one thing we did.We also added the big pip, the bridge and the pipe going into the goal. We also added a thing that is very useful is instead of having to stick everything to the table we added

WHAT WE DIDN’T SUCCEED ON

The things that went well in this design session was everything worked excepted the bucket connected to the rod with string connecting them because the string wasn’t tight enough so it didn’t work. Also the Jenga run did not work because one of them was out of line and did not knock over. The tube at the end did not work ether.

SIMPLE MACHINES

This session we added two different simple machines. We added a pulley and a lever and a wheel and axle.

WE FINALLY GOT IT TO WORK!
