The first lesson we had to do our Parts People and Interactions. As we were doing the school system we had to do school things in parts and people from the school like a teacer as people and interactions.
Next class we had to draw our thing we were pulling apart here is a drawing of my thing with labels of each part. I am doing the calculator ruler.
I started puling my thing apart here is the first part of me pulling it apart:
This is with all the screws out:
Once I took all the screws out I took the front to reveal the mother board and the battery pack:
After I saw what was inside I started to pull it apart so In the video I’m about to take the battery pack and the screen out and of.
Now we just have to disconnect the screen from the circuit here are two videos:
Now that we have finished pulling it apart we can start up cycling it into something new. I am working with Bobbi and we are going to use pieces from her radio and my ruler/calculator. We decided we were going to make a phone her radio as the base, the calculator buttons for typing, The screen where you add your calculations up and her antenna to tune the phone. We then drew our design for what we wanted it to look like.
Now that we have finished drawing we can start making our design. We used hot glue sticks to glue it all together. We printed of apps and a piece of paper that had the time on it. At the end of the first day of making it looked like this:
Here is a video of us gluing the apps on:
we have finished making out model and now we are doing our coding! We are doing our coding on Makey Makey. We are going to have sound affects so that when you press the YouTube logo it will come up with a song, When you press the antenna it will come up with a radio station we made up. When you press the on and of Butten it will make a dinging sound. The calculator will make a typing sound. Here is a video of the start of my code:
We have finished our project now. I have found this very interesting and fun because you get to pull apart staff and make it into something new. I learnt that you had to have a clear design or it wouldn’t work. I found this very enjoyable because you got to see what was controlling everything.
