In coding class we finished the code for the ellaphants we built. The kids made a program that would use the robot keypad buttons to control what it did. Up button to make the elephant walk forward. Down button for backward. Left button for head tilt and trunk trumpeting. And right button for picking up an object.

Kids looked at how an automatic peeler works. They tried to make a model of a peeling machine. Most kids found that the motors they have used are not strong enough to support spinning the apply or the carrot. But there was a cute video of Nile's working!
For these two weeks, kids worked on an elephant robot. It is supposed to walk without wheels.

After the science class, Owen took hom the magnifying glass and started making it into a pair of VRglass. I used it to watch a 360 VR clip and had a great time with it!
