If you are not working on programming, please get an unused robot from the Club room

(ask me) and restore the tub to the way it looked originally

.

Friday 3/8

Look at this very interesting robot structure.

8th graders: Animal Allies Challenge

7th graders - you can build some different robots, and program a mission or two with each one. You should make
notes of the pros and cons of each style - these will be on your assignment sheets.

6th Graders - work on your programming skills. You may borrow a Riley Rover from one of my other classes.
Don't do assignments that you did in class.

 

closing Closing activity:

Log off and come to the front.

**************************************************

 

Friday 2/21

Please get out all your props and decide if you want to keep any of them. Throw the rest out.

Girls - let's video your missions today.

Remember the party on Monday, March 4th.

Tuesday 2/19

Club, we must congratulate the Rose Gold Moon Flames, who scored the highest robot score of all the Milwee Teams
at Regionals on Sunday. We have extra snacks to celebrate!

Afterwards, continue with the secret missions. We have until February 28th to submit a
video of your robot doing the missions to try to win a prize.

Girls - would you like to enter the Project CSGirls competition? Zoey and Victoria were
semi-finalists a couple of years ago.

Otherwise:

7th graders - you can build some different robots. (I will update this section next week).

6th Graders - work on your programming skills

 

Friday 2/8

Moon Flames - you must fill in this form together.

Is your Team Information Sheet finished? I need your paperwork.

If these aren't all submitted by Monday, you won't be allowed to compete.

Other teams, continue with the secret missions or with the following training:

7th graders - you can build some different robots.

6th Graders - work on your programming skills

 

Friday 2/1

8th graders - are you interested in entering the Thomas Edison Pitch contest?
You have a few weeks to create the entry video.

7th graders - you can build some different robots.

6th Graders - work on your programming skills

Moon Flames - let's get some programs working. Also, add information from the
company feedback to your presentation. Work on a better 3D print.

Friday 1/24

Moon Flames - Please open this LONG Team Information Sheet and fill it in for Regionals. I will add the photos.

Space Invaders - please get a checklist from me, and baggies, and pack up the last field kit for use on the Practice table.
That means that we don't need the loose bits, but put them in a bag in the box anyway.

You will arrive at 8 am, go to the media center to get your badge and a small breakfast, then help in the media center
and cafeteria until the opening ceremony. The go to your work stations.

These are the tentative Job Placements:

Tuesday 1/22

Space Invaders and Team Enterprise, start working on the secret missions. We have until February 28th to submit a
video of your robot doing the missions to try to win a prize.

Remember to develop a strategy, and write an algorithm for each mission.

Moon Flames, look at these videos. It uses the educator robot, not Riley Rover, but the ideas are all viable.

How to build a Riley Rover Medium Motor attachment

Using the medium Motor attachment on a Riley Rover for an FLL mission.

Satellite orbits mission

Extraction mission

Core samples to base

3D printer mission

Supply and crew payload

Tube module mission

If you want to see more of these missions, look on YouTube for "Mr. Hino Into orbit".

You need to develop a plan for the next four weeks, and a work breakdown so everyone knows what they should do.

 

Friday 1/17

Come and sit in front so I can tell you what to do.

Monday 1/14

Check the Updates.

Houston Bunch, we will debrief.

if NASA chooses their design. Start making a short list of questions to ask him.

Check your emails for answers.

Send some more emails.

Continue to work on your strategy assignments.

Continue to work on your robot design assignment.

When you get around to planning missions, you must use the Algorithm sheet.
