    During day two of Josh Burker's "And Then? Projects for Schools, Libraries, and Homes," participants were challenged to build unusual instruments using cardboard, aluminum foil, and conductive copper tape. Once built, the instruments were connected to laptops using a MaKey MaKey. http://makeymakey.com The instruments were programmed to make sounds using Scratch. https://scratch.mit.edu

            • Swinging Robot

              Everyone has swung themselves on a swing by moving their legs. Well, here’s a robot that can do it too. It uses the Lego WeDo Robot kit. You can see the control code for the robot here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/64965232/ If you want to make it yourself, take a look at the backgrounds inside the project on the Scratch website for lots of photos. Just click the green flag, and the leg will move back and forward, making the robot swing. The key to getting this to work is to get the timings of the swings right – the delay in the loop should be half of the time it takes to do a whole swing with the motor switched off. You can measure this yourself by timing several swings, or use the distance sensor and a bit of code to measure it automatically.

              • Earthquake Simulator

                This is an earthquake simulator I made with the Lego WeDo robot kit. The control code can be found here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/65558592/ Place an object on the grey platform, then click on a number from 1 to 9 to choose the intensity of earthquake you want. Click 0 to stop the simulator. You will need to hold onto the non-moving part of the simulator to keep it still, or find some way to fasten it in place. You could use a simulator like this to have a quake-proof model building competition. Who can build the tallest building that won’t fall over? To see how I built it, look at the various photos I’ve added to the project as backgrounds on the Scratch website. Also note, that the numbers do not correspond to any real-life seismic intensity scale. I cannot accept responsibility if you use this simulator to test a construction that subsequently collapses. You have been warned!

                • Centrifugal Governor

                  This project is for use with a centrifugal governor that I made using the Lego WeDo robot kit. You can see the control code and photos showing how I made it on the Scratch website here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/67078458/ Centrifugal governors consist of two arms with weights at the end, attached to a vertical column. When the column rotates quickly, centrifugal force will cause the arms to lift, triggering a mechanism that will reduce power to the motor turning the central column, hence preventing its speed from increasing any further. Centrifugal governors are commonly used on steam engines to control the speed at which they operate. For more information see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centrifugal_governor In this machine, when the arms lift, the string attached to them lifts the roughly circular plate towards the bottom of the central column. This then allows the cams that are underneath it to lift up, so allowing the lever to which the tilt sensor is attached to move. Once the tilt sensor is activated, power to the motor is reduced, until the arms become a little lower, so allowing the plate to fall down, and returning the cams and tilt sensor to their original position. Power to the motor is then once again increased. This repeated action ensures that the speed of rotation is tightly regulated so that it remains within a narrow band of speeds. Every time the mechanism alternates between increasing or decreasing the speed, this project announces this with a popping sound. The mechanism is started with the green flag, and can be stopped gently by clicking the stop sign that appears on the screen. This will rapidly reduce the power applied to the motor. This stops the machine much more smoothly than if the machine is abruptly brought to a halt simply by clicking the usual Scratch stop sign. Pressing the space key will cause the motor to be accelerated to full power, so demonstrating how the machine would operate in the absence of regulation by the governor.

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
