This term in our robotics unit, we started reaserching about robots. All the usefull information we got was posted on our wikispace.
- What is a robot
- Robot rules
- Robots in the Movies
- How they affect us
- What they are made of
- What impact do they have on us
All this time we have been following the MYP design cycle, which at the end lead us to the Evaluation stage. To make our robots, we used a lego product which is called Mindstorms (hardware). At the stage when we were finished building it, we used Robolab to proggram it.
At the proggraming stage, we had some difficulties with the tower and the software. First of all, in my opinion I think that it's a bit hard to understand what the proggram is saying to you. This is because there is no wiriting at, just symbols. The other thing is that this software is about ten years old and it sometimes starts to act funny. Due to this complications, we weren't able to to proggram our robot. On the other hand, it was the first time for almost everyone in the class to build a robot.
I myself have one of these mindstorms nxt kit, (a newer version) and it is by far easier and more sofisticated that the ones we used, but it's still great fun building then.

The iphone is phone released exclusicily by apple.It has some new features that most phones don't have. For Example: it has a touch screen, you can connect to a wireless network without using your credit.If you flip it around you look at pictures and youtube videos, talking about youtube videos, the iphone has a feature that it has youtube allready installed in it. So if you want to watch some videos you just need to touch it with your finger and there you have it.Did you know that the iphone doesn't have any buttons, exept for one that its only fuction is to light up the screen.You can get them in most thechnology shops and for sure the apple shops. You can use it in many subjects. It can also be a good idea to make a new interactive map, that can be installed in the GPS system for the new students. And they can also be used for the homework.
