So in tech I decided to do an extra project. I chose do make a ring. what I did was that I got a thin piece of copper. Then I twisted it three times around a marker. After that I made it strait and the rapted it one time around the marker. Then I weaved the extra copper around the ring.
So in tech right now we are working on flashlights. I just finished mine and I colored it silver. I works like a regular flashlight, when you push down on the switch it turns on. All the things that we have been learning about leads up to this. First we made the circuit then we soldered it, and put it in the plastic. Then we colored it, finally we were done.
Our teacher, Mr. Calvert, told us that we had to make three switches that worked. A light bulb had to light up when the two pieces of tinfoil touched each other. Mr. Calvert gave us some ideas that we could use but I decided to use my own ideas. My three switches are down below. The first one works when you press down on the circle. The second one works when you pull the stick to make the two pieces of tinfoil touch, then it slings back. My third switch works if you press it down on either side.
This is a picture of an open circuit and a closed circuit
In technology we have been working on circuits. There are a few things that you need to know to make a successful circuit. First you will two wires, a light, and a battery. Another thing that you need to know is that it needs to be a closed circuit. If it open then some of the wires will not touch each other, so the energy will not pass to the light bulb.
This week I have been working on a Solder person. There are a few things you need to do to make a Solder person:
- First you get some of meatal
- You tuist the meatal so that you have legs and a face
- You cut another piece of metal Solder it on
- You are done!
That is how you make a Solder person. You could bend you meatal to make your Solder person to do anything. If you have any questions comment!
This week we have been learning about the Periodic Table. As of this year there are four has been four more elements added to the table! In class our teacher played the the old song and the new one and he wanted us to try to find the new elements. Comment if you think that you can find the new ones.
A few days ago we did this challenge called Breakoutedu. We had to look at the clues around the room and try to open lock to the safety goggles. The room was split up into two parts. The other side finished before my team but it was fun. Mr.Calvert (our teacher) said that if we were not able to open the case then we would not be able use the safety goggles the hole quarter.
Hi welcome back!
In technology there are many dangers machines such as a scroll saws and soldering irons. we need to have rules to keep us safe these are the rules:
- Think before you act
- Tie your hair back if you have long hair and don’t wear baggy clothes
- Don’t assume you know training before tools
- No talking when using machinery
- Always wear safety glasses
- Before using a machine get instruction, get permission, and inspect machine.
- Unplug the machine when you want to make unadjustment
- Never leave a tool unattended
- Be cautious
- Be careful
- Never nudge someone
- Report all accidents
This is an automata
For the next about ten weeks I am going to be doing a program called Technology. In Technology we can make cool projects. I am very excited that we are able to make something with a circuit because I think it is fun to do trial and error to see what may go right or what may go wrong. We are also going to be making automata’s out of cardboard. I wonder how we are going to make the objects move with only turning a lever? I am planning on telling you guys alot about what I am going in technology.
