Lego robotics

This week we made Lego robots and programed them to do cool things like make their jaw open and close and sense when something is coming or not. We programed them on the laptops. Today we will make them make a splash noise!

Marshmallow Challange!!!!

This week we did the marshmallow challenge. The marshmallow challenge is where you use twenty pieces of spaghetti, one yard of string, one yard of masking tape, and a marshmallow to build the tallest structure we can with the marshmallow resting on top. I think we all learned that team work is very important, and believe me it is harder than it looks. 

We did a crowdsourcing activity as a class.  Below you will see what we assumed before the challenge and what we came to learn after the challenge:
