Notes

The Project #1 Presentation/Summary Video makes up 25% of your overall mark.  I have attached scoring rubrics for each so you know my expectations.  Presentations will start on Monday, November 6th and will also be on Tuesday, November 7th.  Order of presenting will be drawn on Thursday and posted on the whiteboard.  Both presentation and summary video MUST BE SAVED ON MY DESKTOP BY THE END OF CLASS TUESDAY, November 7th!  Here are the links to the presentations done last semester along with the our YouTube channel playlist of summary videos for examples.

alot has happened since my last journal. when i left of the last one i just scanned my head but was having trouble getting it onto the computer the way we got around this was by using a different wifi for the ipad to email the scan to Mr. Hallihan who then forwarded it to me. the next thing i did was put my scan in a program called autodesk meshmixer wich ive had many crashing related problems when i tried to use the autofill feature, i got around this by using a head model already in the program and just alligned it inside mine to fill holes.after finishing the head model i exported it and put it back into tinkercad. there was some slight problems doing this though because there was holes that appeared on my torso so my work around was to take a half sphere and shape it so it resembled a torso then positioned it to fix the problem. when i finished everything i exported one more time and put it into makerbot to get it ready to print, it had to be resized so i exported it again and put it into makerbot, this time it was the right size so i saved it and started the print

Here are some great websites for project ideas/builds...

https://www.brilliantlabs.ca/

 

http://www.instructables.com

Planning is key to any successful project!  You will now begin to brainstorm and research project ideas.  This project can be done in pairs or individually (groups of 3 need my approval).  Keep in mind that the technologies in the MakerSpace are available for all groups but I am hoping that a pair of students will take ownership of a particular technology.  As well, I encourage students to use more than one technology in their final project build.  Since many of these technologies are new, start with easy objectives in the beginning in order to strengthen your skillset.  

 

See attached rubric for more details on what needs to be in your proposal.  Also attached is the blank word document...save and rename.  Email hallihana@nbed.nb.ca with completed by Friday, Sept. 15th.
