More about Electricity!!!!!

Watch the Brainpop movie On Electricity https://www.brainpop.com/science/energy/electricity/

Blog What you learned here.

BInary Tell me what it means? 2/5

After watching the Brainpop Movie and doing the quiz. As a class leave me  a comment telling me what you learned.

Thanks Ms. Broderick.

Makey Makey Today we wire in groups

I can understand how a simple circuit works.

Here is your task: Wire the Makey Makey to extend the circuit outside the computer to make a circuit  that includes you and the Makey Makey board.

Remember what you need for a circuit. Power source + electron flow + conductor for the electrons to flow on +Load that will use the electron flow. And most important the circuit cannot be broken.

Assemble your materials

Prezi On Makey Makey

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.

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!!!!!!!

Bee Loops

Today lets practice Looping with the Bees at this link https://studio.code.org/s/course2/stage/8/puzzle/1

 

Here is your sign in https://studio.code.org/sections/NDQFSC

Then go back to the blog and use the link above to navigate to todays lesson.

Mr. Mac Code choice Day

Mr. Mac’s Class we have been gaining many skills coding .  You can choose something on Code.org to explore today. For twenty-five minutes

Sign in https://studio.code.org/sections/MGTQTS

 

You can also code at Scratch https://scratch.mit.edu/

Then take a few minutes and tell us what you did and what you learned today. What was difficult and how did you solve it.
