The aim of this was to make the birds to dance in clockwise and anti-clockwise using a code we created. The code on our computer travels though a wire to the connection point to a other wire that travel to the motor to course the gears that controls the first bird and that the front there is a pulley that moves more gears to controls the second bird. Me and Michaela built our dancing birds by following instructions on a program Lego wedo, which along we learnt on the how gears work. The program we start with only made it go in a 360 degrees, together we figure how to make it spin clockwise and anti-clockwise to make it look like dancing. We started to add music to make a birds dance, we change the program again to make it dance with the music. It took us several attempts to accomplish. But we knew to was not perfect.
Here is our finished code
Excited but nervous wait ,wait ,wait I was only excited because I am going to attempt to make my first moving lego car. It wasn’t easy we face challenges and problem. But we did! I know what your think who is this we. Did you think I did this alone of course not I could do with out my partner Michaela. She help though all the problem, challenges and I help her, I could not ask for anyone better. Lego we do is a program were we learn how to program and discover what we need to build a cool lego robot. Our first problem was our car was turning around in circles. We discover need gear to make our car go straight. Turn out we were right I know I can’t believe either, anyway next we thought how can we make it better. Well I thought why don’t we add people (not real people just lego people) we both agreed, it look awesome! Soon we had a test drive… our test drive work! I felt excited inside, but I still know there was anyways something new we can add but we ran out of time. Now it was time for the challenge.
