Research on Asia and Problem Solving

Today has been packed full with learning. This morning we learnt about a Rube Goldberg Machine and how scientist identify problems then work to overcome these, despite failures. The failures become steps towards future success. 

We then took time to trial out problem solving skills using MIT's Scratch program. Students needed to code a "Sprite" to engage with them in a simple "Siri" like manner.

Finally, our focus shifted to our research on the Asian countries we will be presenting on later in the term and the design of our device that can see around corner using mirrors.

  1. Enjoyed Wills light globe video and also the persistence of the Rube Goldberg video, looks like so much fun
