Today Friday the 28th of July half of year five was put in a robotics group for a week and a scratch group the next week and the other way around for other half. I was in the robotics group and our challenge was to a go around a strait line and a circle by going left then right on a black line. Mine sadly didn’t work because i missed the first session only had one session. here is a video of my first attempt:
I have changed my program bur i didn’t have time to test it so it may or may not work
here is a photo of my program :
It is supposed to go right till it sees the black line then left then right etc.
I learnt how to use the forever block which makes the program inside it do the program forever . and also the switch block which makes a decision depend on what your two answers are mine where if it sees black turn right but if not turn left.
I loved the robotics week and learnt a lot.
Today Wednesday The 23rd of august i was back in the robotics group and today and for the rest of the week we have to finish: black straight line, Black straight line and when i touch the touch censor it turns 180 degrees and come back, The black oval, the black oval and stop with the touch censor, The oval and stop after a whole oval, a swirvy line where i have to do the type like left right when sees the black but on a swirvy line and also the mars rover challenge where you have to program your robot to do a course for example go pick up some meteorites and back to base then send up a satellite etc Here is some other people doing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrCNUchzlwc&list=PLtOYjIUMwEckD5G-O7nVTUtk0NyzFW492&index=3 highlight and right this link and press on go to https://… this should show you all the things to on the mars rover challenge.b Here is the black line and turn around and back WIN_20170822_14_48_35_Pro-16geavy
We also did a app called sphero on our i phones and all devices. we went in partners and we shared a device. We had to download the app Sphero edu and use that we started a new program. Here is the sphero we used :
we had to use one of the three ways to program or move it the three ways are drive, draw and program drive is where you can chose the sphero’s colour, speed and use a stick to drive it around and you can also aim which way to start facing here is what the things look like on the app:
There is also draw where you draw what you want it to do on a Cartesian plane. Example draw your name and the Sphero will do it or a circle. You can also change colour and speed. There is program which where you place blocks on top of each other and the Sphero will do it example roll for 1 second at speed 80 and facing 0 degrees.
With the sphero’s we had to go around shapes like triangles and squares i did the square. Next lesson i hope to be able to do the rectangle or triangle.
