Hummingbird

Hello this is my post for Hummingbird.

 

The Dr Seuss Hummingbird Challenge

What type of creature might you create?

What variables might you consider?

 

  • Can your creature move? How? When? How much? How fast?
  • Does it make a sound? What sound? When? For how long?
  • What does it look like? Does it change colours? When?

 

My initial goal is to create Jight Wolb in a Light Bulb that uses hummingbird to make a great, fun and amazing experience!

 

Here are the parts, purposes and complexities of my design:

This is the first iteration of my creatures system:

The parts which were the most challenging was trying to code the LEDs and motors to work. This screencast wouldn’t work but basically I was saying that my vibration motor would work and then it wouldn’t. It was not consistent

 

I was able to get these working by making it so It just vibrates all the time instead of just when you touch it

 

 

The second iteration of my creature’s system is so I will change it so I will take the sensor out

 

 

Here are the parts, purposes and complexities of the additions to my design:

 

 

This is the second iteration of my creature’s system:

 

Here’s a screen snip of my code. The code was challenging because again it was not consistent but it worked out well. I also changed it to tri coloured LED

 

I was able to get these working by getting help from a friend that had done it and also keeping the code on when it worked so I wouldn’t have to try again.

 

This is a short film of my learning journey throughout this project:

Lego EV3

Hello I am Kaleb this is my lego EV3 project with Hamish and Jake. We made a robot claw and a car!

Work

starting planning!

working on the claw!

getting things ready to put on the claw

i’m working on some building

coming along well!

Look how good he looks!

It works!

Also we made a car here it is.

here is the car!

here’s it finished

 

Code

starting my code!

I am coding to make the car move

Reflection

I have had a great time doing this LEGO EV3 machine I cannot wait to hopefully do this again in the future. I may not of done the best project but at least i made something! I would do this again for sure.

Interactive australia map project

What this is about

In this project I am going to make a interactive map of Australia. So when you press on a state it will say about that state. I am trying to teach people about the great country of Australia.

Facts:

smallest continent

7th biggest country

scott morrison is the prime minister

25.1 million people

its the only continent that consists of one country excluding antartica

it is an island

States:

Victoria

new south wales

south australia

western Australia

queensland

northern territory

Australian capital territory

tasmania

I have learned how to program a makey makey properly. I am now planning on using it some time in the future I have also learnt more about all the amazing capabilities of scratch and I WILL use scratch a lot more (not playing games I mean doing work) so yeah I have really enjoyed this experience. We have had our fair share of problems including realising the makey makey did not have enough cables to do all the states but we found a solution we just put multiple states on the one bit of code. I think we have well considering a lot of people might find this hard and yes it was hard but we had got the hang of it after only FIVE weeks! I think if we did this again we would be experts! I have had a great time on Makey Makey and scratch hopefully we can use these great programs again.
