My ColourBot has a battery-powered toothbrush to move the robot around and my robot makes designs on paper. I collected my materials and then I began putting my project together. I was going use a pool noodle but it didn't move well so I used paper cups instead. I taped a toothbrush to the inside of the bottom cup and then I taped three markers to the outside of the bottom cup. I made a face and I used pipe cleaners for arms on another cup. I taped both of the cups together and then I cut up pieces of yarn to make hair. My mom helped me hot-glue the hair on to the top of my robot.
Students were to create an automatic bubble blower, it turned out an automatic bubble wand contraption for students to blow bubbles. Students learned how to code to make the motors run. Then created their prototype. Many changes had to be made with the propeller part, in the end, students choose to opt-out of the propeller part and use younger kids to blow the bubbles. Regardless, students had fun creating!
Provide clean light and education to those in need. Over the stoppage in school as a result of the covid-19 pandemic, I worked with Josh Keys to design and print a circuit board. In the process, he taught me how to design circuit boards, how to create 3D models of them and a lot about electrical engineering. After designing the theoretical board, I would assemble the components and find out what things worked and what did not. Today, we have professionally printed PCB circuit boards and have implemented test points and labels so that the future students assembling and receiving these boards can learn about electricity too.
Creating video games using raspberry pi and creating a video arcade to play them on. First the students created video games using the software raspberry pi. Then the students used the raspberry pi device to connect with a monitor, joystick and game buttons. Once that was accomplished, the students used cardboard boxes to make consoles to house the joystick, buttons as raspberry pi device.
