Most of the Biggies have now finished their marvellous machines. They took the basic cams and added some artistic flair.
Some of the class needs to go to the Kilsyth Academy Maths competition this morning so they need a wee bit more time to finish (now added to the video).
We also took some short videos on the machines in action.
We now have some moving machines, hopefully get them all running and make them beautiful this afternoon.
The Biggies are always enthusiastic about making things. Today we spent an hour reviewing and making examples of different ways we could join Cardboard.
The joins included, flanges, gussets, L- Braces, slots, tabs and several more techniques.
We hope this will stand us in good stead later in the term.
We have been working on out Micro:bit guitar project.
We started by Hacking our headphones to work with the micro:bits Microbit Guitars
We made guitars with our artist skills and programmed the micro:bits to react to light and acceleration to make ‘Music” Micro:bit guitars part 2
We then make Robot masks, and video or still image backgrounds for our performance.
We videoed ourselves playing our guitars in from of the green screen and used iMovie to add these to our background Movies.
