Prezi On Makey Makey 

pastedgraphic-1

We are beginning to learn about Makey Makey our goals are to be able to connect a Makey Makey to to control a computer. YOU NEED A  connected CIRCUIT FOR A MAKEY MAKEY TO WORK.

  1.  First lets try to understand what a circuit is. Today let us  Watch the Brainpop Movie on Circuits to get an idea of how an electric circuit works.  Here is some of the  vocabulary you need

  2. Electronnegatively charged subatomic particle


  3. Current  a steady flow of electricity

  4. Power Source  is the thing that provides a steady flow of electrons

  5. LOAD THIS IS THE DEVICE THAT WILL USE THE ELECTRICITY THAT is made by the power source.

  6. Conductor a material that it is easy for electrons to travel on like metal

  7. insulator a substance like rubber that does not conduct electricity.

  8. Switch disconnects the  circuit so that electrons cannot flow. This happens when you turn off a light you are breaking the circuit.

______________________________________________________________________

  1. Static electricity/ Naturally occurring electricity sudden naturally occurring electricity like lightning  cannot be harnessed easily because All the energy is released at once.

IN A  FEW SENTENCES TELL ME HOW A CIRCUIT WORKS. WHAT DO YOU NEED TO HAVE A FUNCTIONING ELECTRIC CIRCUIT.


Hour of Code: Computer Science For All day!

Last Thursday and Friday, on January 12 and 13th  P.S.373R celebrated an Hour code and our Robotics program.

We had a Technology Field day of Sorts that featured Code and robotics.

We featured Websites like Code.org Scratch and Code academy.

Two of our classes from our Petrides sight joined us.

P.S.37eR’s celebration of the  Hour of Code Computer science for all day was a great success.  Here are some of the stations we had during the Hour of Code.  Don’t miss the students own words on the even below the photo’s You can read what kids have said about their experiences at Hour of Code celebration below.

P.S373R Celebrates the Hour Of Code!!!!!!!
