Makey MaKey Part 2

I have made multiple projects in makey makey. I have already made a gaming controller and a bongo in makey makey as well as a piano. for the piano I used 6 coins instead of fruit because I thought I had ruined too many fruit. the coins worked fine but I had my wires in a jumble so I am fixing that. I the other problem is the coins slide too much. I have found that the coins do not get ruined after using so this will be a bit easier to start with. I hope when I make my scratch music thingy, the wires won’t be in my way of playing the music. I am planning to make a song that says hello in every single language and the coins change the voice type. The types include: Giant, kitten tremor and a few more.

Makey makey

Today In design we used makey makey a extension keyboard. This uses wires to transport electricity. What exactly is “electricity?” electricity is a form of energy with kinetic energy and many more. makey makey  works like this. Space key: wait until touch earth then space. arrow keys: if touching earth then arrow. Loads of Items use electricity such as: makey makey,(duh) computers i pads, lights and fans. I had no idea how or what makey makey was but now I did the extension activity: a gaming keyboard. The bongos were really cool, I made the bongo keys using bananas. The other keys for the gaming keyboard were a lemon, and 2 pears. All these items   work because they have moisture in them. Some of the fruits have tough skin so you need to bruise them by rubbing on them or whacking them.    

Final scratch post this term!!!

I have done tons of projects this term on scratch and I have to say. I love all my published ones. even the ultimate eye endurance test. I have learnt that I make projects faster then I make ideas! I have 6 published projects and my favourite 3 has to be the Dino game 2.0, Which is the updated version of the no internet game. Record race which is pretty nice because it has 2 parts but my favourite is a clicker that I have not named as of 27/03/2020 10:44. One challenge was making 2-p dodge ball because of the crazy amount of code. When I made Record race, I figured out that clicker game code is easier then I thought so I made another one. When people come up to me and ask for help, I think the biggest challenge is getting all of the requests done. Once most people are on their scratch project half the time I am “booked out”. another hard thing is I cant’t make someones project for them so I have to help them a bit and then I have to get them to go off on there own. One thing I want to do is make one big project to show what year 5 working together can do. It would be amazing. We could have multiple projects for different themes. I hope we can do that.

triangles for math

These are the scalene, equilateral, right and isosceles triangles I made using Geo-board: scalene withe angles of 45, 27 and 108, equilateral all 60’s, right one 90 and 2 45’s, and the isosceles triangle 54, and 2 63’s. the acute and obtuse triangles are the equilateral and scalene triangles respectively.


Quick recap:

Ali’s father has been killed by the Taliban to protect him🤔 ( bit of Taliban background: the Taliban wreaked the twin towers °□°) he has been sent away to Australia to live in freedom but instead of freedom he is in a refugee camp called woomera. Not free in the free country!

“Woomera is a prison. the worst type of prison. Imagine not being able to do anything at all.” quote from Ali in refugee. he has taken a interview there and told him that his father was killed by them. The guard was heartless and just tossed the interview onto a big pile of  paper. Ali was sure he would be released soon but when he asked a guard he laughed and said “some of these people have been here a year.” Ali was shocked by this news. His friend Safir got in a fight with some Iranians. He began to lose hope, but then a school started. His hope fell until he was in the school: one of the things he learnt was about Australia. “Why would they teach us about Australia if they did not think we would live here one day” He gets to help the little kids and as a reward he gets points and buys a phone card and tries to call his relatives.

purple circle orange square

purple circle and orange square

This is the code for the purple circle.(sorry about the blurriness) Space creates clones that brighten up the stage.

The orange square changes when you press the down arrow and write something. (code too long to add in here) Pressing space also makes the orange square, well, orange again.

I found that graphic effects like whirl, colour and fish eye, improve the project. Too much? press the up arrow to clear the screen.

ten block challenge

ten block challenge

In this project we had to use only 10 blocks (When sprite clicked, hide, show, wait, size, glide to, go to and repeat were some of my options of blocks) I made 4 cats in the house colours(red white green and blue) and you clicked the cats once to start the dance. they all do the same thing: shrink, then grow a bit before going to their corner then growing and finishing in the centre. They repeated this 10 times. At first I had no idea what to make so I started with the background, which gave me inspiration and it flowed on from there.

debug on scratch… not

Important words

Code- a set of instructions for a computer

glichy- Doing things that look like their not working how they should

crash- stop and not do anything

When we did debug it I was away sick😢, so instead I’ll talk about my projects.

Project 1: 2-p Dodge ball

My game is a dodge ball game where 2 balls try to be the first to hit the other person 25 times. Two players play at the same time with wad keys and space.the other player uses arrow keys. (Do not spam shoot. I put a safety catch so you can only have 5 balls at a time otherwise you disappear)

Project 2: Glitchy Pong

The ball has lots of strange effects so it looks really glitchy. Other then that it is normal pong. Not that unique but the code was all my own.

Well how much did you debug these projects?

On the first one a lot you could fire 500000 and make scratch crash but I stopped that and limited to 5 at a time.

On the second one the paddle kept turning but I found how to fix it with 1 block.
