Today in class we did a sketch museum. What we did is that we looked at our classmates sketches and took feedback on it for example we are aloud to take notes about the sketch’s and ad a step or 2 to ours. It was really fun to revise positive feedback about ours. Our teacher told us to pay attention to labels, neatly drawn diagrams,steps clearly shown,color and a simple machine. Every time we looked at some ones we gave them feedback. The Reason that we gave feedback was for we can make ours the best that it can. We got 20 minutes to look at other peoples sketch’s. In general the Rube goldberg sketch museum was really fun.
For my 3rd blog post I am going to talk about what are the pros and cons about working with a partner, when you work with a partner you have to go to each others house to talk about the detailed sketch whose house are you going to do the project. Most people in our class did it with a group. Only like one person in our class did it solo. Most people did the rube goldberg project as a duo only one group did it as a squad. 14 people did it as a duo. A chose a duo because it would be funner and each person should do about 50% of the work. So I don’t have to do all the work but I don’t have to do 25% of the work.
As I said in the 1st bolg post, the maximum time that we get is 5:00 minutes. Mateo and I first thought about turning on a light switch, but then, we took into account what our teacher said that it is five minutes. So we said to ourself, would you rather turn a light switch by yourself or turn it on with a button and take 3 minutes. So then, we got the idea that we should change the project, to kicking a soccer ball into a goal. We also changed the idea because it will have more steps.
We are starting a project called a rube goldberg machine. I am working with a partner, Mateo. What a rube goldberg machine is suppose to do is to make a simple task easier with alot of steps. For example lets say you want to turn on a light switch, you would hit a button and that will hit dominos and that will hit a book and that will hit the light switch. That is what a rube goldberg machine is. What me and Mateo are doing is a soccer ball scoring into a soccer goal. Our teacher, Vivian Robert told us that we have to have at least 8 steps. The time limit for the Rube goldberg machine is 5:00 Minutes.
