Tech Day Nov/14/2017

Technology is about solving problems.  Today I learned that technology is not only a device. Today I solved the problem of playing hockey with a robot and building a successful truss bridge out of chopsticks that would hold computers.

The first thing that I did was robotics.  I learned how to control my robot and learned how to play hockey with it.  I also learned how to reflect on how my robot did and how to improve it by adding extra pieces to have things like control and defense.  I think this helped my reflection skills because I really had to think about how to make my robot better.

The second thing I did was truss bridges with chopsticks.  We had to build a bridge that would hold computers.  I think that I had to use my thinking skills to find out how our bridge would hold it.

 

Thank you
