Birke Baher TED Talk

Question 1: I think the main message from his ted talk it that there is something wrong with our food system and how we grow our produce, and that he is trying to make a difference and we can to.


Question 2: One of the things he used really well is that he put expression into his voice and talked really well so his accent didn’t matter. He also used his hand allot and was energetic. He also created a slideshow that he showed on the projector behind him.


Question 3: One of the big technical supports he had was the projector behind that he showed pictures on so the audience understood what he was talking about and to get the message across better.


Question 4: He used his hands really well as a presentation techniques and the fact that he didn’t really stills till he was always moving just a little bit so the audience didn’t get bored and was still interested the whole way through He also used the projector behind him to his advantage.

Richard Turere TED talk

Question 1: One of the main messages you could see very clearly was the fact that he really cared about the topic and he had been rehearsing a lot to make it as perfect as possible. You could always tell that he had done lots of research about the topic so he understood what he was talking about.


Question 2: He used the projector behind him to show pictures about his topic so the audience new what he was talking about, and also so they could understand and get a better picture about the topic. He also spoke quite clearly even though he had a bit of an accent I could understand him quiet clearly.


Question 3: Again he used the projector behind him to get the message across better so the audience felt for him and got ma visual picture of his topic. He also had a mic so that the audience could here him better.


Question 4: One of the presentation techniques he used really well was that he used his hands often so the audience stayed in treaged. He also stood up very straight so that the audience new that he cared allot.

Thomas Suarez Ted talk

Question 1. One of the main things to take away from toms ted talk was that your posture counts, because it shows how confident you are. Also if you are nervous, try your best to speak clearly so people can understand you.


Question 2. He often kept I contact with theme so that the audience new that he cared about what he talked about. He often used his hands to get the point across that little bit better.


Question 3. In his arms he had a IPad which had his notes that he acationly glanced at. He also had this big projector behind him that he showed pictures of the apps he was talking about.


Question 4. One technique he used well was the fact that he stayed really centre  of stage so that all the audience could see him. He also was very enthusiastic and was very bubbly.

Lego Robotics term 3

In term 3 for robotics we had to do 7 black line follow challenges.

The first one was a black oval that the robot had to follow I learnt about two new bricks while doing this one was the colour switch witch tells the robot what colour to sense


The second challenge was that straight black line follow this one was hard because we had to learn how to stop the robot from going of path


The third one was an black line follow turn around this was extremely challenging for me because we had to learn how to link a colour sense and a touch sensor to work together. We got it to work eventully


Challenge 3 follow straight black line turn around touch come back

In term 2 we learnt about Spheros which are little machines that are orbs which you need to program

this is a video of a sphero that we programed to do this task

what I learnt in this task is that you have to be very precise with the bricks that you use for programing spheros


this a pic of the program that were you for the exercise above

with spheros


the thing with sphero is that there are a lot of blocks to program one and pick the right brick.

I also learnt that there are many bricks that look the same but they do very different things to the sphero.

There is also a brick that can make the Sphero flash different colours that I learnt to use.


This is a pic of a chariot that we had to make for our sphero

what we learnt in this lesson was that you had to make the chariot evenly balanced on all part so that it will not fall off.

One of the problems we encountered was that the chariot we made was giving the sphero a hard time to turn because of the way it was made.
