Today we started Lego robotics. I was in a group with Alex Sophie but Alex was away. My favourite part was building but Sophie was mostly building and I was getting the parts which made it a lot quicker. I really enjoyed it we haven’t done the coding part yet but I am looking forward to the coding.
here is a photo of the complete robot
The whole year 5 did some coding in the morning. You had a partner and you would say your series of codes and they would have to do. You would have to test a couple of times I attempted to do it on Kieran twice but it wasn’t finished yet.
But I really enjoyed it. It was a wonderful experience
This session was amazing it was really great we just were exploring through Lego mindstorms the programming app we use to program our robot it was great because the robot was just doing different stuff then there was a task but it was hard you had to program the robot to the exact measures there were three different types of ways to program the robot for example seconds and distance but in the end it was really fun .
Our first task was to make the robot go up and back in 3 different ways. I thought it would be hard but I eventually completed all the tasks. But I then helped my group to complete the task it was really exiting getting through the challenges. All you need is 4 different parts to make the robot work here are some photos and videos of it working.
challenge 2 diamond weaving.
here is a little screen cast explaining our codes
here are also some photos of the robot and the programs
challenge 3 sensors and ELC 4 coming
The first part of Friday was just learning how to use sensors and what they do and what they are. I thought i could not use a sensor but i got a program to work for it it is half complete it was really great learning and experiencing tough times and good times. here is the program.
Part 2 ELC coming
This part was the fun part the ELC came and looked and played with the robots because they are learning about robots. I thought it would be a challenge explaining every thing but it was really fun i enjoyed it.
The session was learning how to use touch sensors i thought it would be difficult but it was interesting and i got it to work there is 2 challenges 1st one was to make the touch sensor touch your hand and stop then the next part was to make the robot to go up back side forward and stop. It was confusing for me. But it was fun
This session Will and I had the honours of building the machines for the mars rover challenge. It was confusing when we couldn’t find parts. Because you would have to go through different parts and when it wasn’t in the box. But i enjoyed it.
Today in this session Archer and I decided to do the Mars rover challenge.
