|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
Is to get sam to dance on the pan.
Here are the parts, purposes and complexities of my design:
This is the first iteration of my creature’s system
The parts which were the most challenging were finding out how to code our creature. We didn’t know that there were code blocks on Hummingbird for the “gear motors” that are the motors that make our creature move, so if we used the original what was instead of using code for the motors we used “rotation blocks” thinking it would work the same way.
I was able to get these working by making a new code and a new plan. we are going to put the gear motor facing up so the weal is facing up to, our creature will spin on the weal!
This is the second iteration of my creature’s looks was a little lite because same love to dace when there’s a lite because he think theres a dace party (there is no lite sensor)
This is the second iteration of my creature’s system:

This is a short film of my learning journey throughout this project:
Lego robotics is a project that we share a Lego robot. My goal is to create a launcher that can work! it would be so cool. You can see our code in the screencast. there are these ports that are labled letters and numbers, the code shoes that only butten “3” is be prest, thats because it all happens when the “movment senor” (AKA the butten that you press to make the lauch the laucher that you can see right below this witting)
There will be the launcher that will fire a stick like a catapult. One of the motors was not working when I pressed the batten only one of them was working, then we found out that some thing was wrong with the cord so we replaced it with a new cord, and both of them where working. but then instead of the launcher flinging the stick it went all the way over, (you can see it in the video below the code screencast) but then we saw on Youtube that people put a book on top of the EV3 so that it wouldn’t go all the way around.
Me and Georgie are reasching the Aboriginal history with the Makey Makey, to recreate the sounds, lights, and other things! it will feel like your there, deep in the forest with all the strang and unknown creachers lurking in the darkness. First we had to brain storm write down all our ideas, it took a bit to put it all together but it turned out to be a good brain storm. You can have look in the imige at the bottem right. You can see what materials that we need in the photo that is up there and has a lot of couler. Can you see the green and purple blocks up there? That’s our coding for the recording on Scarch. the top blocks are mostly yellow on Scarch but these are for the Makey Makey so there green. We tried to do a screen of our script recording, but couldn’t put it on Scarch, but then we found out how to make recordings on Scarch, so we did that instead. That paper with the green and yellow writing is our script, that what we used for the recording. We learned that there are lots of Aboriginal tribes, like the Kimberly tribe. (the tribe where reserching) it is also a place you can find all sorts of fish. like, Tuna, salfish, redempra, berumudie, king thred fin, and tarpond. we where not planning on having a waterfall, with a secret! (look in the video up at the top) Even with all of these problems, in the end we made a really good project. I am very proud of the craft.
This is me and Georgie’s rising track that we did together. We had to use the “Microbit” in this project, there are special machines that is like a car but for the “Microbit”. it allows us to make a “microbit” like a remote controller to the car\machine the to cars would rise to the finish line, pretty simple, but there are so obstacle in the way. But this photo was taken before they where made and we couldn’t finish it but if it where, it would have been a great project.
I this project, the microbit will show random numbers when the “A” button is pressed
In this project, when the “A” button is pressed hearts flash to create a animation
this is a “Micobit” it is a little machine that you can code on for whatever you want. in this project, when the “A” button is pressed it makes a happy face, when the “B” button is press it makes a sad face. when both of button’s are pressed, it makes the Microbit looks from side to side, like an animation
This is my “makie makie” instrument (look up “makie makie” if you want to know what it is) this is a Scratch project, we had to code music onto the project and then use the “makie makie” to make the music. you see those little teen foil dots on my instrment? well, when they prest the sounds we play, you can mix up the sounds to mke your own tune. it is simply a box with teen foil dots with some maker for decoration. you can make this your self if you have a box, teen foil, a “makie makie” and electric device to connect the “makie makie”.
