I started doing my automata. Today is the last day to finish. I am obviously not going to finish so i will go to lunch every day next week. I cut four little squares and glued them to the corners. I also cut circles and used the scroll saw to cut them out. It was scary, cool, and fun all at the same time. I really enjoyed technology and am sad to leave. Bi!
I started doing my automata! I am going to make it a koala going up a tree and down. I am going to use a small wheel. I will start making the automata the next day. I got a box and around eight pieces of little cardboard. I am excited to start and have been waiting a long time to make it.
This blog post I will be discussing how I made my flashlight look like a strawberry!! I figured big black dots would make it look like a watermelon so I made little black dots because strawberries have little black dots. Big black dots would look like seeds of a watermelon. I am happy that at first everyone thought it was a watermelon because I improved on it.
I colored my flashlight green on the top and red everywhere else. 1 out of 30 people said the flashlight looked like a watermelon. That was my first plan but after I saw somebody somebody else doing a watermelon and I didn’t want to copy anybody. So I made a strawberry. It doesn´t really look like a strawberry. Read my next blog to find out how I made it look likea strawberry.
I finished my flash. Kirwin helped me more than half of the project so I “Technically” owe him my whole project but he is nice enough to give me my flashlight. I got to use the Drill Press for the first time. That’s not all. I also got to sauter my circuit. I was so much fun. I learned that sauter looks like metal. I used to think the sauter was the hot thingie. I enjoyed the project but I have to admit it was frusturated and overwhelming.
I finished my second and final switch. I wasn’t able to make my third switch. My second switch was this square. On the top of the square there is a cut out square. There is a rubber band at the top hot glued. There is tin foil on the bottom of the rubber band and on the bottom of the cardboard. You pull the rubber band down and wala!!!
I finally started building something. I started building circuits. I finished one of them. It is called a blade switch. There usually is a popsicle stick and you pull it down. You glue tin foil on the popsicle stick and on the cardboard on the bottom. If you connect it to a light and then pull the switch down, the light will turn on.
This week we learned a lot about self driving cars and that they require a lot of very complicated coding. Self driving cars need to make tough decisions and if the car makes a mistake, the price may be very severe. People don’t need self driving cars so I think people should focus something more serious.
This week we learned about different types of games like bond breaker, and Phet. I learned alot about:Protons, Neutrons, and electrons. I had no idea we were going to learn about that. Technology has a lot of suprises and hope to see more fun ones.
This week we were reveiwing machines and we did a really fun game called escape the room(we had to open 3 locks instead of escaping a room). It involved a lot of team work, spy work, and patience!!! First time playing the game. I hope we will be able to play again. In technology the machines are really cool. I am excited to use them. I have heard of the machine before but I have never saw or used it. I couldn’t believe that the sauter machine gets hotter than 900 degrees hotter.
