Week 1

in Tinkering my group and I are making an paint spinner which spins pain to make a cool painting. we are using is a DVD player and have taken out the part that spins the DVDs. At the start of this week i didn’t know what makey makey were but know i know you can program it to spin on the computer on scratch then make it spin in the real world.

This is what we are hoping to make.

Session 2

This has been the best week ever. We got nearly every thing finished after we found out we don’t need to use makey makey. I learned that we didn’t have to use makey makeys we just had to use some thing that we tinkered before. Earlier in the week my group and i went up to it to get some thing down loaded on to our laptop but it didn’t work so we were so happy when we heard we didn’t need to use makey makeys.
