This term we have been focusing on two programs called lego robotics/ev3 and Sphero. On the 7 of October, we were told that my group is going to do lego robotics. We had an idea. The idea was we were going to build a battle bot. So we started off with the touch sensor then moved onto the light sensor. then we finished so we add a medium motor. then put axles as blades. Then during some mornings, I would add a shield so the other battle bots would get their cords tangled in the blades. Then we battled. Here are some pictures of it.
On the 21 of October, we started the program called Sphero we have to do mazes and our maze is going well but the sad thing is we have to code it to go through the maze. this is what our maze looks like
this is the type of code we used. the code is called block code as you can see you have all types of mathematic blocks and that was we’re the maths came in. my partner Zach had to do most of the coding because I was away for most of the day because I had to do chess enough about chess. so I don’t know lots about sphero but I learned along the way and now I will soon continue the maze challenge.
color square challenge
Today on the 26 of the 10th we did a challenge called color square. It was when we had to make the sphero go to a certain color square.
we went in the order of these colors orange, blue, pink and purple. its took quite a while but we finished in the end.
This is a pic of my code and it worked but it was a bit faulty but still worked so we have finished the sphero tasks and next week we will move on to drones and hummingbirds.
for me and Liam we did not get much done at all because our drone got stuck in a tree and a camera was not working so I had to use my laptop to film it. When we got it down then it wouldn’t take off so we were definitely the most unlucky group so we barely had any time to film or do anything because when it stopped working we went inside. we are not up to the code yet we are trying to get films we are doing code next lesson. When we use the drone we do not make it go fast because there are sprinklers
