This week we worked on colour sensors.
Our group worked amazingly physically and mentally. The reason I say that is because we found out the correct pieces and attached the in the right spot. (well what we think it’s right😜). I say we worked well mentally because we used our knowledge to complete the tasks.
The challenge was difficult but we worked hard and figured it out. Take that challenge😃! The task was to make our robot go in a square. We also had to make sure I didn’t touch the piece of paper.
This is our robot about to attempt the challenge.
We finished it! 😀😜
We had fun! 😊
This week we worked on the touch sensor.
Our robot was being quite annoying so we got Mr Colbert’s help and he… FIXED IT! 😊😉
So our next challenge for our group was to complete the following tasks,
- program the robot to go strait until it touches our hand.
- Program the robot to move forward until it touches the edge of a wall. When it touches the wall we had to make it back up then turn 90 degrees.
Our group completed the first task then we moved on to the second one and we accomplished the challenge. I think our group struggled a lot at the start but then we finished it in the end.
Here is some of our codes.
We had soooooo much fun. 😜😉
We had a fun session 5!😜
In lesson 5 our group worked on having the robot speak the words “Hello World”. Our robot was having some technical difficulties, so Mr McKie helped to restart Claxina, our robot. It still wasn’t working so we changed our brick. Claxina started to work after making some changes and we completed part one!
It was difficult to code the robot to move like we wanted it. I know that there is a solution to command the robot, so that it does the right thing. We just need to find the answer.
Applying (adding, putting [effort in)
We tried our best to complete the tasks and we each took part in attempting the challenge. Mistakes showed us the way to success, which will is a skill that will help us in the future.
Analysing (observing, Putting it together)
We looked at our code and we just couldn’t figure out what was wrong with it! So we got some help and tried different combinations until we found the answer.
Evaluating (Work out the Answer)
We had a lot of trouble with our robot. First it kept turning off because there was a problem with the brick, we changed it to a new one and then it was working. A while after that we had problems with our code. We just couldn’t work it out! We observed the code again and saw that we wrote the wrong seconds, our robot would turn for half a second and then stop. Nina helped me analyse the problem and figure out the answer using that data. We needed to lower the amount of seconds between the turns.
Next week we want to accomplish the second part of our challenge so we can move on and learn new things 😊
On 19\2\21 we started to finish off all our challenges if was very difficult because turbo was turning on us and it was hard to work with him so we had to restart Turbo a million times until we just changed the brick. We got some challenges done 2 of them to be specific but the one that turned out the best was the 360.
We had fun doing these challenges.😍😁😊.
In Week 1 Of robotics We started Building Our First Ever Robot.
We started Off By Building Our Robot and learning How to Access The Instructions. It was Difficult because if you put the pieces In The Wrong Spot you would Have To Remove The Piece.
The Next Part That I Think Our Group Can Improve on is Programming it Harder So We Give Ourselves More Of A Challenge. I Think Our Group Worked Very Well Together And Accomplished The Task We Needed To Do.
The Importance Of Turbo (our Robot) Is That He Performs Our Learning With Out Using Words Only Programming Codes, When The Year Comes To An Conclusion We Can See Our Improvements.
We Had Sooooooo Much Fun Doing Robotics😊
Last week it was our first, amazing session of robotics.
We were in a rush to find all the big piece’s and small ones too and on top of that all the racket being made by the year 5 seagulls made it even harder to think about which piece went where. We accomplished our challenge in time and started programming it. I worked with two amazing coders Nina and Max.
Here is a picture of part of our program in process.
And we also have a short video to show you.
Welcome to your College Digital Portfolio! A Digital Portfolio is like having your own website. It is a place for you to learn about being an active and responsible digital citizen by creating a portfolio of your best work to showcase and share with others. Through the creation of a blog, you will be able to write regular reflections and share your learning journey through photo and video with your teachers, parents, each other and possibly even experts from all around the world.
For more information and support, speak to your teacher, explore, play and learn from each other! Learn how to publish your first post by visiting Publish your First Post. After that see what you can do! Visit the Edublogs User Guide for more help developing your new online space.
There are so many ways in which to use your space, for example:
- Documenting and reflecting on your learning, passions, and interests, both in and out of school
- Curating and highlighting work for your Student-Led Conferences
- In some instances, your teachers will also ask you to submit, reflect and comment on other students work in this portfolio
That’s enough to get you going. Your Digital Portfolio should be a fun, enriching and rewarding way to explore, find or create your place in the world. Good luck!
