Today we had another session of Tinker cad rogramming challenge. On tinker cad, I tried to create an owl toy. It is a plastic toy that looks like an owl. It was very hard because the eyes kept … Continue reading
Today On the 29th of October, we went to the senior school a little earlier than usual. We went to the Keith humble Centre for the VCE arts exhibition. While we were there, we saw paintings, photos, bed frames, movies and heaps more. My favorite things were the bed frame, the tragedy of apple piece movie , the dresses and clothing and the marble elephant. AKA the elephant made out of marbles.
the bed frame was cool because I can’t believe some one actually made it. It was life size and I think it was beautifully made and designed.
Second of all, the tragedy of apple piece movie was rally funny. It started with the apple. they drew a face on it so it looked really funny. It was being chased by a knife and then got cornered by another one. The apple was surrounded. It got cut into about 50 little tiny pieces. One piece survived. It was apple piece. It had another really funny face. It was trying to find it’s food group. It went past the oranges, the bananas, and a lot of other fruits. It finally found the odd shaped apples. It was so happy but as soon as it started to walk over, it got squished by a boot. I thought it was really good animation and was funny and clever.
I’m going to skip to the marble elephant now. I think it must of taken a lot of glue! it was basically heaps and heaps of marbles shaped as an elephant. it was really clever and must of taken a long time. It looked really detailed and very hard to make. I wish I could make something like that!
My favorite one out of all of then was a movie called tragedy of apple piece. I can’t wait for VCE to do our own project for the exhibition.
On the 29th of October, we continued on the programming challenge. My challenge was to create a pencil holder and some other things in scratch. The pencil holder was the easiest thing to create because all I needed to do was to stretch a square and stretch it into a rectangle. The key chains were also easy but like I mentioned the easiest was the pencil holder the easiest. The hardest was making a trophy. I had to get the dimensions right for the half sphere and the height right for the printer to actually be able to print it.
I learned that it is actually really hard to create something that looks easy.
On Tinker cad I am working to improve my jewelry making skills on Tinker Cad. I’m trying to make a necklace and other accessories. If I put a small hole through the pendants or ear rings or whatever it is so you can either hang it on a chain or to do whatever you need to do to make it work.
My other achievements I would like to make a pencil holder or some sort of cup. I was hoping to make it so that it had little holes in the sides for decoration or to stick some patterns or letters . I did tinker cad for my elective a couple of terms ago so I am really only going to try to improve my tinkering by a bit.
I might even try to make an I-phone case!
