The Zibry in the libary

 

The Dr Seuss Hummingbird Challenge

What type of creature might you create?

What variables might you considkeer?

 

•        Can your creature move? How? When? How much? How fast?

•        Does it make a sound? What sound? When? For how long?

•        What does it look like? Does it change colours? When?

 

 

My initial goal is to…….

Make a ‘Zibry in the library’ a half bear half vulture that goes from quietly reading a book to a crazy dacer whith gear motors for arms and vibration motors in it’s body when you say “Dance party”

Here are the parts, purposes and complexities of my design

 

 

This is the first iteration of my creature’s system:

The parts which were the most challenging were…….

 

I was able to get these working by……..

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

plastic

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.

 

My Makey Makey

 

My project with my main photo on it

 

Adding the ‘quiz seahorse’

 

Adding the A, B and C answers for the quiz

 

Adding the angel fish

 

My code and what I learnt

 

Adding paper ‘sea sponges’

 

Adding the Makey Makey

 

My pipe cleaner ‘sea weed’

Adding masking tape supports to the ‘sea weed’

Adding my ‘sea weed’ to my rock

My Great Barrier Reef sign

Adding my Great Barrier Reef sign to my project

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

 

understanding

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

Applying

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

 

Analysing

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

Evaluating

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

Creating

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

My micro bit step counter

This is my step counter (and it’s code) I made with my BBC micro bit.



My Micro Bit smiley buttons activity

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is my smiley buttons activity. The first picture is of the first code I did on this activity. First I dragged a on button b loop into the work space. Then I dragged a show leds block and put it inside the on button b pressed loop and made a sad face. This means that when the b button is pressed it will make a sad face. Next I dragged another on button b pressed loop and changed it to an on button a pressed. Then I dragged another show leds block and made a happy face this means that when button a is pressed it will make a happy face.  After that  I dragged another on button b pressed loop and changed it to an on button a+b pressed loop. Finally I dragged two show leds blocks and made the face looking left and another looking right. This means that when button a and b are pressed together it’ll look one way then the other.



My Micro Bit Rock-Paper-Scissors

 

This is my Rock-Paper-Scissors game I made on my Micro Bit. In the first photo it shows the start of the finished product. First I made a variable called weapon. Next I took a set weapon to block and connected it to a pick random block. Secondly I changed  the 0-10 to 1-3. Then I took a if  true then block from logic and the took a 0=0 block (also from logic) and connected them. After that I took a weapon block and connected that to the 0=0 block. Then I changed the other 0 to a 1. Next I took a show leds  block and made a small square. I did the same thing for the rest of the code except I changed the numbers for the weapon=1 to 2 and 3. I also changed the pictures to make paper and scissors.



my microbit thermometer

Micro Bits have a natural thermometer that can be can be used for a project with the temperature block (this block is my project). I made a variable called temp and dragged out the block that said set temp to 0. I put the temperature block into the set temp to block. Next I put this new block inside an on shake loop. This means that every time I shake the Micro Bit it would set my variable to the temperature it was registering. Next I dragged a show number block out into the work space and put a temp block inside I put this entire thing into the on shake loop. This means that when I shake the Micro Bit it would set my variable to the temperature it was registering that it would show the temperature. Then it would show the temperature useing the show number block.
