Hi! its Bindi. You can tell by the tittle that I am leaving Paparore school,Its an amazing school and I have had an amazing adventure at this wonderful school.I will be going to intermediate school but i'm sure my friend Faye and I will visit some times and give our teachers a great big hug. My friend Faye and I will be in the same classroom and we will be studding together. I had a graduation a few days ago and now its time to say good bye to this beautiful school because its my last day at Paparore school. I am leaving with 30 year six students in my class like my most greatest friend Faye.

STEAM reflection

Name…………Bindi πŸ’œ……   Date . …………….18/9/18……………
- Coding (Snap4Arduino) and Arduino Boards
In Term 3, the students have been continuing their STEAM learning using the STEAM Electronics kits. They have been learning how to block code using the program Snap4Arduino. The purpose of this learning has been for the students to control one or more LED lights on an electronic arduino board using code. Each week the coding expectation increased and the students showed perseverance in achieving successful outcomes!
Learning Goal 1. To make an LED blink off/on by controlling voltage from 0V to 5V by programming the Arduino.
Learning Goal 2.  To change the speed of blinking to such a high rate that the LED appears to be dimmer.
Learning Goal 3. To make the LED fade on and off by varying the voltage

2018 - Term 3 STEAM - ‘Coding and Arduino Boards’ Reflective Questions

2018 - Term 3 STEAM - ‘Coding and Arduino Boards’ Reflective Questions

What was I learning and why?
I was learning to make an LED light to flash with a cool app called snap4arduino to plug in cords to make the light flash.

What did I do well and how do I know?
I now know how to shine two lights flashing with a little help from my friends and partners.I know that I did well because I never gave up on my friend and me.I also helped with confusing parts that I didn't get but I got there.

What challenged me ……?
The thing that challenged me was to put all the cords in the correct places to make my lights flash,that was really confusing to plug in.

What would I do differently next time to make my learning more successful ….. ?
I would try to make three lights flash or shine two lights without any help and never give up no matter what.I would also follow the diagram for more help.

What have I enjoyed about the learning?
I have enjoyed to make lights flash with my friends and using the snap4arduino that is plugged into a breadboard.I also enjoyed putting the cords in the right place without giving up.
