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-
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:
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.
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.
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:
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.

This is the BBC Microbit Move mini. Me and Harry programmed our robot to go in a circle. we thought it was impressive until we put a pen inside it. now we can make a perfect circle using the robot. The robot was really fun to use. I hope to use it again in the future.
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!!
