RGM-Rube Goldberg Machines

RGM vid

^^Here^^ is my Rube Goldberg machine video that i built with some materials from home!

The progress of making this was pretty challenging considering i have never made one before, but I did get some help from my dad which was good!

First I had no idea what to start with or what the end resolute would even look like. But I decided to start with something and just add on as I went. I started with dominos and that did not work out for me because they kept knocking over and they weren’t strong enough to tap the thing that I wanted it to. So I decided to scrap that idea. Next i found a marble run that we had in the carboards and that worked pretty well! Now this was the hardest things that happened in the whole prosses! I wanted to make some sort of track that the marble could go down at the end of the marble run. I tried it once and it did not work because it was the same level the whole time which means there is not enough gravity or momentum for the marble to move. So my dad told me that I needed it to be on a slope and have it start higher. I was really annoyed about that because that meant that i needed to reorganize my whole track. But luckily my amazing dad helped my do it and that worked after a few try’s, after that i made the end of it a bit of acting that you will see in the video!!

So…

Thank you for reading all about my RGM and i hope you have a wonderful day!!

Micro;Bit Speaker Project

Here is my code for my speaker project and i have made the music myself.

How it works is that when you press an A,B.A+B or shake the music will come

out of  the speaker with a different song every time!

It was so fun to figure out and use it! But it was challenging at first because I

had no help from Mr McKie.(it is also really fun to annoy your class mates!!!!)

 

Here is the recording of the songs i have made up! I hope you like them!

Micro Bit

This is my first time on MicroBit and i am obviously still learning, but i have also learnt a bit too! On MicroBit there are many tutorials  that helps you learn all the tips and tricks to the program!

 

 

Rock, Paper, Scissors

This is my code for the rock,paper,scissors game i did on MicroBit.

How this  code works at any time you shake the Bit  there will either be rock, paper or scissors on the screen and you can also do it with a friend!

This code was challenging at first but got easier as i went on (Ashaiya also helped me!).

Smile and Frown

This was one of my favourite tutorials!

This is how it works: If you press “A” it will come up as a smile and if you press a “B” it will come up as a frown it is so fun to play around with!

Overall it was a pretty easy code but it was sill so fun!

 

Thanks for reading                                                                                            Quinn:)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Misfortune

Misfortune is a very old word first used in the 1500 and it is 520 years of age.

It means Bad luck or an unfortunate event.

Some synonyms of the word are bad luck, ill luck , mischance and mistake.

I chose this word because misfortune is something that happens in everyday life and also i had heard the word but i have not really thought about the meaning of the word.

Billie Eilish Q&A

Billie Eilish's favorite movie growing up was 2014's 'The Babadook ...

My  makey makey project is going to be a Q&A about a well known singer…That’s right it’s Billie Eilish! How i plan to do it is i will have a base probably cardboard or just something hard. Then i think i will have a picture of her as a background a stick it there , The title will obviously be: Billie Eilish Q&A and there will be questions and underneath them i will have green and black shapes and when you press them an answer will be said by coming out of my computer. The shapes will be placed all around it the and i am trying to make it look pretty all at the same time!

Hope you like the idea!

Thanks Quinn 🙂

Walking StrawPaino

This is my StrawPaino

It is called a StrawPaino because it has strawberry paper. It is a walking piano too with means that instead of using your hands you can use your feet! (which makes it a lot more fun, well i think.)

This is what my scratch screen looks like…And this is my code…

I also programmed the strawberry to change to a different dance move every time I play a note on my StrawPaino. There is 5 notes on it. I found it hard to Make it really look like a Piano. To make all of the keys the same i got a side of a big book and it made a crease and folded it on the crease. I hope you liked my blog post and i will see you soon! Bye!

Controller

In this project i did not know that i could use the  pins so i was try for so long and then i found it out and it was so much easier !

But at the start it was really easy to do the first controller but the second controller it was sooooooo hard before i found out what to do.

The challenging thing was to keep trying and not to give up because at the end i felt so good when i did it !

Electricity

What is electricity?

Electricity is a form of energy that power lots of things.

List items that you use for electricity:

lights, heating ,motors cables and many more!

When I was doing the bongos at first it was not working so I sent this picture to Mrs Watters:         

And then she said to me that I was missing a cord so I put it in and it was lighting up when I pressed the fruit but still no sound came through my computer! Also I found out that if you put the earth clip on the end of a charging cord it work instead of holding it!

 

 

 

Conclusion

This is a blog post about the word conclusion.

I like the word conclusion because  it makes me

feel good when I finish something (or conclude

something). Conclusion means : The end or finish

of an a event ,process or text. The other meaning is:

A judgement or decision reached by reasoning.

An example to put it in a sentence would be:

The conclusion of building my new house.

And for the other meaning : Each group

came to a similar conclusion.

I hope you liked my blog post about conclusion!

Triangles Investergation

Throughout the past 2 weeks we have been learning

about triangles and there measurements. We have been

useing a tool called a protractor and what it does is

measure your shapes angels. Like the example on

the top of the page the measurement was 26.6 degrease.

And today I made a few different triangles with different

names like equilateral and acute triangles. I can’t wait to

learn more.
