Our D75 Tech Project Intrepid June 13th

Let’s delineate exactly the perimeters of our project.

Here are our student’s impressions of our project thus far:

Malachi: Our project is about the One World Trade Center, Empire State building, Freedom tower. The Flat Iron building and the Statue of liberty. The Statue was a present from the US from France. We are creating  map of New York City and using Ozobots to travel from building to building. We are in the process of creating the building out of Lego and Puzzles.

 

Nayshawn: Our project is about the Freedom tower Statue of Liberty and Flat Iron building. And we are going to use Ozobots to take us through the city. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France . We are using the Ozobots two ways we will navigate using Blockly code and the optical color code.

Secret: I think our project is about The Statue of Liberty and it history and how France gave it to us for our hundredth birthday. One France first gave it to us it was copper colored but now it is green. We are also using  Ozobots. Ozobots are like mini-cars but they use code. We are dressing them up like cabs and coding them to trade from landmark to landmark.

Tysean: Our project is about  Using Ozobots get around the city that we made ourselves of Legos, puzzles and different objects. It could get hard because we need to code the Ozobots to around Manhattan from Land mark to Land mark. Ozobots follow color coded dark lines and and use Blockly.  We will use the Ozobots to showcase The Statue of Liberty , Freedom tower and other landmarks.

Mr. Harris:

Our project  is to use Legos 3d puzzles costumes like the the Statue of Liberty and Ozobots in a mini taxi costume> Our project is to make a mini model of Manhattan and have the Ozobots travel using color code and Blockly code. The Ozobots will tour Manhattan.

Keyon:

Our project is about New York city . The amazing place with it’s tall buildings, law offices and cars. The World trade center is the best building It has tons of security systems and is a long as the original Twin  towers. It took 8 years to build and cost billions of dollars. I think this the project it is inspiring us to really learn about the way the history of these buildings. We are using Ozobots to code using color and block code to get from building to building.

Kaylaysha  Sanchez:

I think our project is abs the  important places in New York city.We are using puzzle legos and other things to build models of important buildings. While learning  all about these buildings. The Ozobots  represent us traveling around the city. So far we have learned about The Statue of liberty, The Freedom Tower and We will be using the Ozobots to travel from building to building.

Intrepid project: One World Trade Center

Here is a video on the Construction of one World Trade center. Of course you cannot talk about One  World Trade center unless you talk about the Twin Towers. The buildings that were attacked and fell on 9/11/01. Watch the Video and we will read about the building.

All about creating conditionals

Here is the code we wrote last time

Write 5 sentences about your use of conditionals in Scratch.

The conditional is the if and then block/ This block says if I do this then that will happen. The blocks are involved in what we call a Cause and effect relationship.

Meaning we look at experience in terms of Cause and Effect.

The Cause in the code is “if the Sprite is touching the color green PastedGraphic-1

The Effect is   the Then play sound duck until done PastedGraphic-2

 

You do not play the sound without the sprite touching the color green.

If we were to see this as a hypothesis which is an educated guess it would be

I predict if I write the code < If touching color green then, the Duck sound will play.

 

Start your Writing with Conditionals are…….

Include the following information What is a conditional Talk about “Cause and Effect”.

What is an if and then statement, explain.

Include an example of a conditional in your life.

What blocks in Scratch are conditionals?

What part of the code did you write in Scratch that are the conditionals, What blocks did you use?

What kind of a conditional would you like to write in future programs? What if this then that programs would you like to write.

On July 4, 1884 France presented the United States with an incredible birthday gift: the Statue of Liberty! Without its pedestal it’s as tall as a 15-story building. She represents the United States. But the world-famous Statue of Liberty standing in New York Harbor was built in France. The statue was presented to the U.S., taken apart, shipped across the Atlantic Ocean in crates, and rebuilt in the U.S. It was France’s gift to the American people.

It all started at dinner one night near Paris in 1865. A group of Frenchmen were discussing their dictator-like emperor and the democratic government of the U.S. They decided to build a monument to American freedom—and perhaps even strengthen French demands for democracy in their…

Create your own Ozobot Track

Using Markers and these codes.

Create your own Ozobot Track.

Have your track begin at one point and end make a continuous loop meaning your track should be closed. like this track  Include at least 5 different codes from above.  When you finish your track. You will be given a chance to try it out.

The point of this lesson is to get to know how the different color combinations will code the Ozobot/Evo to do different things.

Learn how to have the laters chase your mouse.

Choose a sprite. Step 1.  Choose forever and point towards mouse pointer

Step 2  a motion block move 10 step Step 3:   get an if block * what kind of a code is an if block?
 Step 4 go to the Sensing Menue and get a touching Color block
