The Block

For my project I have chosen to do The Block.

 

Technology:

First i am trying to get the LDR photoresistor working. it works so if I hold my hand near the sensor it will turn on the li-

Code

ghts will turn on, but if i take my hand away it will dim the lights. I am working towards programming the sensor. Here is a photo of my first attempt and the code ——>

 

 

My goal is to make a full room that includes:

  • Photoresistor Lights
  • Retractable Blinds
  • Temperature sensor for Air Conditioning
  • And a TV (LED Display)

Next i am workings towards building the retractable blinds. I am going to do this by using a turning motor and use it like a cog.

First Attempt

 

 

The challenge of making this come together was finding the right port for the circuit to power the LDR sensor module. this was hard because if you don’t get the right ports than the whole circuit doesn’t power.

 

 

Building:

To put the technology in I need a structure! So first Me and my Dad went to the Hardware store and bought some modelling wood, PVA Glue and Ply wood. Next we printed out a floorplan to refer to went cutting the wood. I sketched the floor of the model the proceeded to cut the base of the apartment. Eventually, I got a wooden floor to start sticking the walls onto.

Next was the painful job of measuring the walls up to scale so no walls were uneven. Then again we proceeded to cut the thin modelling wood out. While thinking we had a good cut we came across a problem. At the end of the cut it was spiking and ruff. We fixed this problem by getting some sand paper and wrapping it around a brick to smooth the edges out.

Now it was time to start gluing the walls onto the base of the apartment. I started by laying strips of glue onto where the walls go, then laying the walls into the glue. But the wood we were using were very thing to most of them had trouble staying up. This problem was easily Fixed by putting some sticky tape on the corners. Then later when the glue dried I took the sticky tape on the corners.

Now, after all that building here is the block so far:

Vegemite Facts

The Formula is Kept a Secret

Like many iconic food brands, Vegemite keeps their exact recipe a fiercely Guarded secret

Its Name Was Picked Out Of A Hat

To drum up the publicity around their new product, The Fred Walker Company launched a nationwide competition to name it ahead of its debut. Hundreds of submissions were collected and Walker’s daughter pulled the winning entry out of a hat. The coiners of the name “Vegemite” were awarded $50 prize.

 

Arnott’s Facts

For 150 years, Arnott’s has been baking quality into our biscuits using finest ingredients. From sweet to savoury, chocolate to fruit, indulgence to simple pleasures.

 

Tim Tam Facts

Aussies eat 45 million packets of Tim Tams a year

Tim Tams went on the markets in February 1964

They were named after a horse after it won the Kentucky Derby in 1958

 

 

Bunnings Snag

At Bunnings you find in the carpark the most Genuine Snag of all time.

 

 

Fairy Bread Facts

Fairy Bread is a piece of bread (preferred white bread) with butter spread with delicacy and coated in sprinkles.

Things I Found Hard

  •  I Found hard trying to connect everything to the cardboard box.
  • Trying to paint it without it slipping of the table!
  •  And trying to get the facts for the project. its very hard finding food facts!

Micro:Bit Python Editer: Simon Says

I Learnt:

  • If you make 1 error the whole program doesn’t work
  • It is really difficult to find the error
  • Lots. Of. Words.
  • It takes a long time.
  • Difficult to type for a long time without making a mistake
  • You have to understand the words to get it working
  • Lots of punctuation
  • You have to take your time
  • Look over it alot
  • Be patient

Thats what I learnt after using Python Editor

Semester 1 Highlight!

Semester 1 has been really good , But my favourite highlight is when we went to Serendip Sanctuary. we looked at birds and saw a Wedgetail eagle. We did the wildlife walk and saw a mum wallaby with her joey. Last but not least we looked at aboriginal artefacts. it was one of the best days in year 4. Have a good holiday, everyone!!
