On our final Bluebot day, we finished assembling the chaise. We added the wheels, the motion censor, and we connected all of the wires to the breadboard. We got the motor to work on our first test run but our robot was spinning in circles and we realized that one of the wheels was moving in the wrong direction. So we flipped the motor around and Voila! We got our robot to work.
On day two we started to assemble our robot . The first thing we did is assemble thy battery holder and the breadboard to the blue chaise. We also added the motor. We had a hard time with screwing on the bolts to make the motors stay on the chaise.
Today we learned how to set up a Breadboard for a Bluebot. Some of the members didn’t think we could do it because it looked complicated, but we decided to take on the project anyway. We had to be completely concentrated while creating a Breadboard for the Bluebot because if we were to mess up, we would have to go to the beginning and start all over again. Throughout the project, we stayed focused on it and tried to finish the important part of the Breadboard within a reasonable amount of time but we ran out of time so we will remain working on our Bluebot project on our STEM day every Thursday. Even though the Bluebot Project looked difficult in the beginning, as we moved on and watched the Tutorials and used the Slide Show for help, I believe that the project will be a lot easier to accomplish doing. I think if you like Robots and Breadboards and STEM, this is the project for you. So I hope you read our blog and wait for next week.
Coding is what people in computer science use to make software and applications for computers, phones, etc. The Hour of Code is a one hour program that teaches coding. Next week, The Best Buy Geek Squad is coming to the Teen Tech Center to teach the Hour of Code program to students at the Boys & Girls Club of Hudson County as well as the After School Allstars from Newark. The event will run from December 7th to the 13th. Students are able to learn computer science skills and are allowed to split up their learning time into multiple sessions so long as they finish the Hour of Code tutorial during the week. The Hour of Code doesn’t have to be limited to a computer. Anyone with a tablet or smartphone can take part in the event. The tutorial guides students itself so its okay if you don’t have any code knowledge prior. Any time next week students can take part in this activity that will hone their skills for future endeavors.
In an effort to give the taxi companies of Jersey City and hopefully NYC an edge over Uber and Lyft, My team and I created an app that would give the cabbies a much needed advantage over their more independent rivals. While this app may still be in alpha status, it shows some early promising results with its user interface and controls. Hopefully the call and location sections of the app can be improved to make it more effective and the app will be able to go on both iOS and Android. The process of creating this app was long and tedious due to the internet shutting down and various team members calling in sick. Eventually, the app was finished and works quite well.
Note: No one try to copy this app
This is an app i made with a quick thought and I actually got
somewhere with it. AZER is a computer company I want to create
when I become a major engineer and own a big company. I made this
app because I find it interesting to make a personal app for your future
company. And I had a good time making this app. Discuss the different pages you created and why. Discuss the type of code you used and your experience learning the program. Create a Close up image of just the app itself to use as a featured image
This is an app created by Ayanna , Cole . We have been working for 1 week and 2 days.This app is to advertise the teen tech center and have people know what we are about and what we do. We faced alot of challenges like the internet not working. One person not being here we had to overcome that and do it buy our selves. We decided to do this app to advertise the teen tech center. We created three different pages to change from on screen to the next. We used Java Script, It was difficult but i enjoyed learning it.
Students at BGCHC created video games with a program called GODOT with a lot of help from one of our volunteers, Jianying Ji. Thank you for making us look good Ji and for giving us a taste of game design. Some of the student’s video games put Pong to the test.
