This year in design we had to make a robotic animal to be part of a robotic petting zoo and have first graders up and try them out.
One thing that was suggested to us was to put the head onto a hinge so that we could access the inner workings of the robotic animal in case something stopped working or if the wires became loose.
One skill that I developed was the ability to code different things and problem-solving when we hit a roadblock, for example, we couldn’t find a way to turn the motor on and off
If I did this again I would focus more on how many classes we had left and on not on how many weeks we have left. I would also make sure I have enough time left to get the programming and inner workings done and planned.
