The LEDs don’t turn on and work if there not in the right place. Each input and output have a certain place to be in. The inputs are the tools that send messages in and the outputs out. The numbers mean the intensity of the program.
These were the output challenges

Challenge 1: was to program the vibration sensor to vibrate. It felt really weird when you put your hand on it. We completed that quite quickly.

 

Challenge 2: Vibration sensor and LED lights . It took us ages to get the vibration sensor and the LEDs on at the same time. We couldn’t get the LED on, only the sensor. We worked for a very long time and eventually got it.
Challenge 3: We needed to get the servo motor going.
This is the program that we used to vibration motor.

After we made the programming it didn’t work but we didn’t realise that it wasn’t right and we just played with the program . We shut down the computer and restarted it, turned of the battery pack and then turned everything back on. We attempted this for a whole hour and in the end we finally got the program working.

These were the input challenges
Challenge 4: We needed to get the motion sensor working. As a team we all chipped in to get the motion sensor on. It was really cool how it all works because when you put your hand on the sensor the number on the program goes to zero but if you put your hand a metre away from the sensor the number goes to one hundred.
If we had more time to make another creation we would have made a car that moves around.
In our own creation Hayder Toby and I created an oompa loompa that to spin when your hand gets near the windmill.
