Categories: 6th Tech

Overall, I had a total Blast in Technology. It was a great way to start off the year and hope other kids agree. Mr. Calvert was a great teacher. He was so nice and was also soooo helpful I will never forget these two and a half months of my life I hope that my my next quarterly will be fun but I’m pretty sure that Tech ology will still be the best. So long for now.

Finishing my Automata

No comments yet

Categories: 6th Tech

There was only one step left in finishing my automata. I had to think of something that would spin around. Right away I knew I wanted to make something funny, iconic, out of the ordinary. Straight away I knew I wanted to do someone from a T.V. show. At first I wanted to do someone from a show like, [The Office, or Friends]. But then I realized that I wanted to do a cartoon. They first cartoon that came to mind for me was [The Simpsons]. The I thought who is the happiest person from The Simpsons. Then it came too mind. Homer Simpson. That. Was. It.

Starting my Automata

No comments yet

Categories: 6th Tech

The new project in Technology Class was making automata. Before we started to build we watched a long video about this guy who made automatas. I was impressed he made HUGE games with levers and pulleys. On the first day when I started to make my automata I just created the box that it would be inside. But on the second day, I started to come up with my inner design. In the end I finished my Inner design but I had to come up with a thing that will spin round and round.

The Circuits of a Flashlight

No comments yet

Categories: 6th Tech

The most important part in making a flashlight is creating the circuit. After all without a circuit the flashlight won’t turn on. To create your switch you need three wires, a battery, a switch, and a light bulb. To create the switch you have to connect the battery, switch, and light bulb together with the wires by soldering. When soldering you have to be careful because if you accidentally put solder on the battery then the battery can burn. After you finish the circuit you have to put the switch through the hole you made on your body. The put the Cap’s on and you’re done.

The Body of a Flashlight

Categories: 6th Tech

When making the body of the flashlight I was pressured because if I messed something up then I would have to start all over. First I had to cut out the length of the flashlight with a big saw. If you made a bad cut you would have to start over. Then you would have to make holes in the body where you will put the switch. You would make the wholes with the drill press and the drill press made me nervous.

Making Flashlights

In technology class, us students were given the opportunity to make flashlights. We were making or flashlights with wires, a small battery, pvc pipes, a switch, a light bulb, and tons of creativity!! To make a flashlight you have to create a design, then get the matireals you need, then get to work! Some of the more difficult and dangerous parts of making a flashlight involve soldering, sawing, and using a drill press. The best part is that when you finish the mechanical part you et to decorate. Bye for now but I will have more posts on how to make flashlight.

Making switches

No comments yet

Categories: 6th Tech

In technology we had to make switches, I thought this was very cool because it was like making a light switch except we were making it out of tinfoil plastic and other low budget stuff. I didn’t really know how to make a switch but my partner knew how to make one. Luckily my teacher had made decoy switches. I made switches that looked a lot like my teachers. It was lots of fun because we got to uses many types of material to make our switches look good. I would have liked my switch to be a little bit more neat but I was just fine. For next time I will use hot glue instead of tape, BYE!

Breakout edu

Categories: 6th Tech

In Technology class we got to do a really fun project called Breakout Edu. It is kind of like escape the room except you are trying  to get inside of the box. There was also another box the was one of the clues for getting inside the big box. Our team opened the little box first and found the flashlight which detects lemon juice. Then we found out what the flashlight was for. In the end the other team opened the box first. It was still a really fun experience and I hope to do it again. Hopefully next time my group will open the box first.

Making circuits

Categories: 6th Tech

In class we were introduced to making circuits our objective was to light up a light bulb. We were given wires, batteries, and a switch to make our circuit. Most of the people at my table knew how to make circuits. I needed to use really sharp tools so I was nervous that I would somehow find a way to electricity myself. In elementary school I made circuits a way easier way. In the middle school we had to trim the wires then take some of the rubber off the wire. During that process I was worried that I would take my finger off.

In the end I made my circuit and I was really happy.
