My Great Barrier Reef project




In this project I am aiming to teach people about the reef and the effect people have on it useing the makey makey


this is a photo of my design book

threats to the reef

global warming


oil spills

About 11.1 billion tonnes of plastic plauge the reefs of aisa and the pasific

this a photo of my code so far I have made an interactive quiz using the Makey Makey and when you press the turtle it tells you facts about the reef.

Adding my Mackey Mackey

This is a video of my project, from start to finish, and how it changed from a mere idea to reality



In my project it was important I made the impact people have on the Great Barrier Reef clear using photos, words and of course, my blog


I could use what I’ve learned to make a bigger Makey Makey – Scratch quiz



In my code I saw a pattern in the quiz. I was using the exact same blocks in the exact same order only with different sounds


I think I worked well but could have made the impact people have on the reef clearer by adding plastic waste such as plastic bags to my project


I think I could use the Makey Makey to make a box with push pins in it that says things like ‘don’t forget your keys’ and ‘remember your phone’ when you touch the push pins
