Ozobot can identify lines, colors, and codes on both digital surfaces, such as an iPad, and physical surfaces, such as paper. You can calibrate the robots to follow lines by holding down a power button. Then you can draw lines for the robot to follow in an app.. Different color code will make the Robot do different things. Today we will explore the Ozobots using markers paper and the Ozobot App. Evo can also be coded using a program called Blockly and can do several other things when connected to an ios device (ipad, phone, tablet) Blockly is very similart to Scratch a language you can write in quite fluently.
On Thursday and Friday, we had our annual Technology Fair. All went very well. Except for the weather. Our Fair was supposed to be on Wednesday and Thursday but unfortunately, the weather had other ideas and dumped tons of snow on Wednesday and we got a snow day we moved it to Thursday.
I want to thank all the coaches who worked so hard at the Tech Fair.
This year featured Lego’s Scratch, all kinds of Code and lots of robotics. We had 18 stations in all. Some of our Robots featured were:
If you attended the Tech fair Please write at least 7 sentences telling me what you liked. and what you learned. What would you like to see at next years Tech Fair.. If you were a coach please tell me about your experience as a coach. If you did not get to go to the Tech fair you can write 7 sentences about some of the robots you would like to work with in class and or why you did not get to attend the fair.

The Ozobots we have are called Evo.
The Science of Ozobots using optical sensors on the bottom and motion sensor on the front and back. This allows Evo to sense color and an object in front of it and behind it. The earlier model was called Bit and only followed color could not connect to an IOS device to be controlled.
Ozobots use optical color sensors to follow color patterns.
Have some fun redesigning the Google Doodle Here.

Let’s Make the Google doodle dance
1st select a song ( don’t take too much time doing this)
2nd. Choose the Play sound button
5th It Works now Press the stop block to reset the effect.
6th Now we are going to make this letter dance
Now Copy this code to all the letters. All the sprites dance to the music.
Our day .
Remember you are responsible for what you do no one else.
