Tech post #5

I have finished all my projects and am using my switch to use a bread board and making a light turn on  and off. A bread board might look complicated but it is not really that complicated. All you do is put the negative side of the batterie in the negative side and put the proton  in the proton side and connect a wire to the column that your light is in vise versus. And there you go.

I finished my jewelry piece and it looks really good. although there is still some clumps of soder on it it still looks really good. I am starting to visualize the switch as a device that you pull up and down like a lever.

This week we started making the ring of are jewelry piece made of a kind of metal wire this metal wire is very malleable. To make this circle you take a one inch round piece of wood, rap the wire around the one inch piece of wood one time. Once you do this make a L with the wires and take a round nose pliers and rap one wire around the other to make a circle around it.  cut the excess off and make a circle with the rest .For my jewelry piece I think I am going to be making two baseball bats overlapping so that they look like a X. For this jewelry piece you can use 5 wires at most. My jewelry piece is only going to have 4 wires.

Passion project #3

For my plan i am going to take a baseball apart and use the leather for a new baseball. Once i start making the new baseball and it is done i am going to sew the leather together so i stays together. If all goes as planned i will use it as a real baseball.

Last week we learned about the periodic table and how on the top right of the element there is a number and that number is how man protons are in the element. On Friday 22, it was human rights day, human rights day is were we celebrate having are human rights.  On human rights day somebody came to talk to us about it. This person created the donation company called pajama program. The pajama program donates pajamas to kids who are less fortunate then us and do not have pajamas. They also donate to kids who do not have books and give them books.

Tech post #1

So far tech has been like most classes in the first week(not the first week right now). Mr.calvert has told us about all of the tools and all of the rules the classic first week of school classroom. There are a bunch of really cool tools like the soldering iron, jig saw, and drill press. In addition to all of that we played a game called breakout edu. In. This game Mr.Calvert but the safety goggles in a box and looked it up. He then told us we had to open the box. My team had to look for clues and open the box. My team opened the box in only 29 minutes isn’t that amazing(sarcasm). The rules are:

1. Think before you act

2. Tie long hair back, no baggy clothes and dangling jewelry

3. Don’t assume you know before training

4. No talking when using machinery

5. Protect your eyes always

6.before using a machine get permission, instruction, and inspect machine

7. Use all guards when using machines

8. Power tools are dangerous

9. Soldering irons are dangerous be careful.

10. Sharp objects are dangerous be careful

11. Walk all the time never push

12. Report lol accidents burns, cuts, scratches, and splinters no matter how small

 

Passion projects #2

For this week we had to do the four questions my answers were,

I will learn how to make a baseball.I want to learn to make because it would be cool to be able to use my own baseball.I will learn to make by taking apart a baseball and measuring the leather. I will then make my own baseball with the measurements I have taken.Success to me will look like a baseball that is able to be thrown and hit. I am going to have to make a prototype first.

Passion Projcet #1

For my passion project #1 my idea is to try to make a baseball from scratch. I got this idea because baseball is my sport and i pretty much am going to measure the lengths and stuff of a baseball and try to make it from that. I think it will be a cool idea to build a baseball and use it.

Overall i thought capstone was really fun and one of the best projects i ever had and if you ever have the chance in school you should defenetly do one. This year at heatchote was one of the best years i have had.

When I was working on my final project it was not that hard because all I had to do was memorize it and memorizing. Memorizing is not hard for me because in fourth grade I had to memorize a toy theatre script. This is what my script looks like.

 

Have you ever you imagined yourself  in an alternate dimension? With Virtual Reality, otherwise known as VR, people can do almost anything. Today, I am going to talk about the many uses of VR.
VR has other uses than just gaming. The other main uses are military, sports/fitness, mental health, medical training, and education.
VR has changed fitness because it gives people an option other than going to the gym. There are games like Box VR, Knockout League and more. Going to the gym is still better but playing Virtual Reality is more fun.
Medical and dental students will be able to train while they are in VR. For example they could perform a surgery or pulling out a tooth. This is good because if they mess up it, will not harm anybody. They are also able to practice as long as they want to.
Students can be taken on virtual field trips. For example, with VR, students can take tours of the solar system and go back in time to different eras.

The subjects VR help most in are

  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • History
The military in the U.K. and the U.S. use VR in army navy and airforce. The U.K. and the U.S. have both started using virtual reality in their training as it allows them to be able to train in different situations like being attacked by other people in a war, or flying an airplane, or even throwing a bomb.
Students with special needs, such as autism, are also using VR technology. A company called Floreo has developed virtual reality scenarios that allow children to learn and practice skills such as pointing, making eye contact, and building social connections. Parents can also follow along and interact by using a linked table. This helps students with their social skills.
It has also been used to treat anxiety, phobias, and depression. Virtual reality technology can provide a safe area for patients to come into contact with things they fear, while staying in a safe environment because they can’t get hurt in VR.
VR helps the viewer’s experience because they can watch the game they want to watch on the headset. This is helpful because if you did not get a ticket to the game you want to watch you can just watch it from your headset, it is also much cheaper then buying a ticket to a game.
For my site visit I went to the Microsoft Store and there they had VR and AR headsets.
Beat Saber is another fitness game and I played it. While I was playing Beat Saber, I started to get tired. It was a really fun and I think you should give it a try.
  In conclusion, VR is more than just gaming. VR is an inexpensive way to virtually travel to places that people are unable to visit. Doctors can train for surgery while using VR. Mentally ill people can use VR to calm them down. Military and educators can train soldiers and students with VR. Using VR is a great way to exercise too! I hope that many of you will use VR more often because VR has so many options!
