At Language Plus Living Spalce's coding class on January 19th, we finished our Rube Goldberg machine. Each kid's module had to run a metal ball through it. After they had finished building it, they then had to work together to figure out the order in which each module should go and how to get the ball from one module to the next. Our class didn't have much programming, but it had a lot of integration challenges and a lot of required cooperation.
At Language Plus Living Space, for our Tuesday coding class, we decided to build a modular, repeating Rube Goldberg machine this time. Metal balls would travel between the 3 Lego modules, each built and programmed by one kid. We did the majority of the building today and will do integration and programming next class. Here's their progress so far!
I know, I know, I know... He had sung this song, I'm Yours, numerous times. But, each time he sings this song, there is always something different. Maybe it's because his voice changes, maybe it's because his guitar playing, maybe it's because he gradually becomes a teenage from a boy, maybe it's all of the above. This time, it just feels just a little more different and unique than before that I am compelled to share.
Well, you can judge by yourself.
This week's science class, kids looked at how earthquake detection is done and made an earthquake detector themselves. Here is a video of Owen's earthquake detector. 這周科學課，孩子們探討了感測器與地震偵測器的科學 & 動手做地震偵測器科學實驗 ，每個孩子都自己動手做了一個地震偵測器喔!
Continuing last week's programming class, we worked on perfecting our trash collect. Despite numourous failures and fastering frustration, we finally got the trash collector to work (somewhat). Here is a post on 12/22/2015's programming class.
Every week, kids always look forward to Tuesday. This is a day that we have friends coming over and study with us. We work on programming skills and learn about science from a day-to-day perspective. Here is a post on 12/05/2015's programming class.
