The Unicorn

  • Skills that I learned or developed were?

I learned how to create a robot-this is the first robot I’ve ever created in my life. Also I learned how to program and correctly use an IR sensor, which is pretty amazing. I conquered challenges and achieved goals. I would precious this memory as one experience.

  • One thing I’d like to change is?

I would want this unicorn to move. Unfortunately due to the construction of this unicorn, me and my partner couldn’t think of any way the unicorn should move. Also a little accident happened so we couldn’t manage any parts to move. Next time, I would think of something and program it to move.

  • One piece of advice I would give a future student doing this project is… 

MANAGE YOUR TIME, MANAGE YOUR TIME, MANAGE YOUR TIME! (important things says 3 times) I’ll tell you what, you are not gonna get it done on time, there’s at least one official hours/ stay after school you need to attend. Do all the work as fast as you can, do not waste any time.

  • Overall, I think this product was successful because…

The little kids loved this robot very much. They all wanted to touch it, asking for permissions. Even they usually ripped some parts of cotton off accidentally, but overall they were adorable and cute! Dr. Hill’s daughter was hugging the unicorn the whole time, not wanting to let go on this last moment. If I could, I wish I could give this unicorn to her.
