Makey Makey

In design we some of the year 5’s have been doing Makey Makey. Makey Makey is where you have a little box filled with a mother bored, wires and cables to connect the weirs together. A mother bored looks a little like a Xbox controller but different colours and flat it has holes so you put the weirs in them and then it creates a electric wave



In electronics I have been making things with electricity. I made a guitar with a things that make the sound go higher and lower. Then I put a USB into the sound controller into my computer then it made a sound. The little box in the corner that has the squares that is what made the sound when I plugged the USB into my computer.

You can control it with the sound stick. It was really fun doing these things in school because I would have never herd of this at my old school.


Scratch About Me

What are you most proud of in this project??

I am proud of helping others when they need it
What did you get stuck on?? How did you get unstuck??

I got stuck on how to start and what to start with.


We all got in a group of three and we had to make programs for challenges. One of them is we have to put a colour sensor on the front of he robot and make it stop on a specific colour. Then we had to make a blog on how we did it.

Colour Sensor

We would tell the robot to stop and do another command on a colour, our first colour was red. Once it reached red, we gave it a command to rotate and move forward to the next the next colour which was blue.
Touch Sensor

We put the Touch Sensor on the robot and made a program so when it hits something it moves back to the start it was hard to do because we did not know how to it but we got there in the end.

What are Lego Robots?

They are something that you have to control and make programs to make it move, it is really easy yo make a program, the teachers tell you what to do then you go and make it, SEE that simple

Rube Goldberg

This is not a good video but the other two have been deleted somehow the tin went to early probably because from the vibration so we change it a bit and we did it almost.


The year 5’s have been doing Rube Goldberg machines. Today we had a chat with a school in another place they asked us questions and we tried really hard to answer and I think we did good it was really l worked on my machine with Leo and Sophie. Sossin we made good progress we are almost done with our machine and I am really proud of myself and I should be.


The year 5’s have been working on robotics lately and we have to program a robot with our computers it has been fun. We have been given challenges to complete using our robot and our program. The first one was to get our robot from one end of the table to the other, our next challenge was to turn it around in a square shape.

This is my program and I think that I did a good job.

Who Am I

Today 5C finished the book who am i it was really sad but good.If someone wote another chapter to this book it would be like this

Mary finds her mum then she moves back where she used to live and live and aboriginal life and be happy with her mum.Dot  would come to and be Mary’s sister Mary would have nice clothes (not saying that she did not have nice clothes in the first place) and live a happy life with her mum and Dot.

Yeah that sounds like a good end of a story I mean I would put that in the book.The good part about it was at the end where she sneeks out of her “home” and rids her “brothers” bike and goes to the conference she felt so c

Roller Coaster

Today the Yr 5’s have been making a roller coaster. I made mine with some of my friends. Our roller coaster was really big so we had to change the style a bit to make it smaller.

Session 7, My group joined in with another group to make our big roller coasters.

Session 8,Our roller coaster was finished! it only took 2 sessions to finish! It looks so good.

Session 9, Today we walked around seeing other people’s Roller Coaster’s it was really fun looking on how unique other people’s contraptions.
