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.
Here is the code we wrote last time
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
The Effect is the Then play sound duck until done
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.
For our project: An old post on the Statue Of lberty
The Light of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty is 151 feet, 1 inch (46 meters, 2.5 centimeters) tall.

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.
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.
Let’s turn the Google Doodle into a game . Watch Directions here:
Learn how to have the laters chase your mouse.
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
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.
