Drones

Hello today in design we did drones. Drones are fun to play with because it’s like flying a remote control aeroplane before we flew the drones we had to do an easy tutorial. We had to code the drone on the computer game to get to the portal to get to the other level the funnest level was the covid 19 level  where the drone picked up the gun and started blasting the virus then it was time to go out out side we flew the drones but sadly our drone had to abort mission because it crashed into the oval and the propeller shot on to Eamons head and then disappeared and no-one knows until this day where it is. Later on today we are going to go get some footage from the drone cam.

Humming bird

Hello, this week we have been doing  humming bird. If you are wondering what humming bird is it is a project that we are doing then next week we are doing drones. In design we built a car. In my group there is Cameron, James and I and we used a program called python and snap. It is kind of a rip off from scratch, it was fun to do but one  off our motors didn’t work. We changed the design to a car because we couldn’t make the motor work. The fun thing was that we created a disco ball including LED RGB LIGHTING, this lesson was great.

in the picture there is the car we programmed the car to move forward and left and right but the problem was that there was no hot glue so we used masking tape instead.

             

Lego Robotics

Today we changed today we did Lego robotics it wasn’t as fun as sphero but it was good there where some code challenges  that where harder then a sphero. I was in a team with Jono and Thomas and we did great Thomas,Jono and i all did some coding and we managed to finished off in 4th period but i think we should build things instead of coding because. I think it’s quicker than coding.

THE PROJECTS.

In  Lego robotics we coded program’s i put my favorite 2  project’s in because they where fun the program’s where called Circle Square, Colour project   i will tell you what they are so the circle square project is a project that you program your robot to do a circle and a square. The second project  was the colour project the robot would recognize the color and go to the color and it would spin when it goes on the color.  

Sphero SPRK+ Reflection

A Sphero is a robot that we use in design. there are cool things you can do like change the color to red to green also you can have a party by spamming the light’s. You can also aim, aim is the direction that the Sphero travels then there is the speed there is a button on the side of the joystick. We can also code it to, that’s what Thomas and i did we tried it with the Ollie but it was to big to fit the track so we tried Eamon’s track. But most of the time we couldn’t do it because our sphero didn’t work and lots of them where charged because people kept connecting to other peoples robot.

So then we switched to the Ollie and it was good so far this was the best design lesson ever JK it was the greatest design lesson ever.

In design we built a maze for our sphero we where 95% finished and it didn’t  turn a corner it was really frustrating and that’s not the only worst thing that happened  5 Spheros and the battery was low for every robot we tried. and tried and every sphero was low battery then Mrs Jones AKA my favorite teacher sorry Mrs Watters and Mr Mickie she said that Thomas and I can use a jump in our maze but we didn’t get to it because of the battery life on the sphero.

 

Rube Goldberg machine

Yesterday I made a rube Goldberg machine i got the amazing idea off Eamon and his great project .So the thing i did was first i planed it out then i desided  what material i wanted. Then i built it it was really easy all i had to do was get strait train tracks  and line it up with a tube touching the bell.  It took a long time to film because i kept laughing.

 

Micro bit race track

In Design Jarrod  and i made a bit bot race track also we made a jump.The first thing  we did was draw the track Jarrod drew the first half of the track and i did the second half of the track we also added a start and finish line and we added a barrier to. We also played a car simulator to get some ideas on how to make the track.The race track did not go to plan as the problem was that the micro bit was to big for it.   Then I decided to make a jump out of cardboard  it was not that hard but it was a challenge and we got there in the end. We had to lower the jump so the micro bit could go over or else it would tip over on there back.

Aeroplane Facts

My job was to make a sorry, yes, no and maybe button instead of making these buttons I made an aeroplane facts machine.  The hardest part was to design the aeroplane facts machine.  I used a particular material called foil as it was hard to cut out as the foil became weak, we also found pictures of aeroplane parts and cut them out on the foil.  We also wrote down each of the aeroplane parts using a sharpie, I got a little bit of help from the helper teacher Ms Flynn who helped me cut out a pilot and the rest of the parts such as the wing, the tail, the engine, the wheels, the pilot and I cut out the baggage.  We also put a cardboard piece on top and we cut out the pieces of the aviation parts.  The problem was that when we glued down the cardboard top and the rest of the parts the makey makey kit was faulty when it came to sharing time I clicked on the engine and two of the facts came up about the aeroplane.  In the next design lesson I fixed the faulty engine by separating some parts that were close to the engine wire and the other problem that I discovered was when the cardboard did not stick down with the glue stick and it kept popping up so I tried multiple times to stick it down but then I realized, that I had to use a hot glue gun to stick the cardboard down so it would not come apart then I added some detail to the aeroplane parts to make it more realistic.

my fav word

my word is mistaken it is 420 years old wow that is old the word means mistake it has similar word like mistake i chose mistaken because

we all mistakes and we have mistaken something to

 

 

Buttons that tell what you do

For this project i’m going to make a yes no and maybe and sorry button so then it can decide on decisions that can make if i’m tired or if i lost my voice so then i can rest my voice and it will come in handy if i don’t like something i can press the button so i cant heart anyone’s filings and i can say sorry if i be rude also if you cant speak this can also decide what you do like what you eat for dinner and if u want to go some where.

interment finished

Hello today i’m going to show you how i made my instrument it may seem hard and it may seem easy. The first 2 things that came to mind was guitar no drum so i put the ideas together and poof i had what i was going to build well it was kinda easy because if  you  put another drum next to it. It takes control of the other drum. I wrote some steps of how to do it its not that long its like 6 steps ones you have followed these steps your guaranteed you will have it done. So here are the steps of how to make it. if it doesn’t work  just  email me and i can get back to you. if it works hooray if it doesn’t i don’t know what i did wrong what i found hard was i fond out that if you put a snare drum next to  a bass drum I will go ballistic so then i tried all these different combinations like foot pedal it’s easy it’s simple to make you only need your makey makey kit.

  1. Make or have a guitar.
  2. hook the wires up to what ever arrow you want.
  3. hook the cord up to the computer
  4. add the drum sound in scratch
  5. add the wires up to the play dough
  6. and add it to the guitar.
