Robotics: Summative Reflection

For this summative we had to build a bot that could climb a mini-staircase. We used angled beams that rotated as wheels to pull the bot up.

My strategy worked well for me because I finished in 2 classes. I used a long thin design so it wouldn’t be too heavy and would propel from the back.

A challenge I faced during this project was finding the right lengths for the beams, twice I had to adjust the size and take apart the design.
I overcame this with Perseverance, I was motivated with the adjusted design and was determined to get over the staircase.

This was the first task where everyone created their own design and didn’t use the instruction book design. We learned how to be more creative and tips to building the right bot for the challenge.

Why we should get more lunch time

Why We Should Get More Lunch Time
Introduction 

Balling, running, reading, socializing, kids having fun. So why limit Middle Schoolers’ most important need. Adding more lunch time benefits both students and teachers.
Fun

Kids need their lunch time, P.E. is every other day, with instructions. Library is once a week.

      “When I looked at my own success in management and leadership, I saw that if I did a good job AND was fun/funny, I was actually more effective. So, I coined the phrase “do it well, make it fun” and now, I show people that this two-step concept can apply to just about anything” forbes.com, a valued magazine. Because he says this is important because you can apply this into just about anything. I learn that I can try to add jokes in a presentation to do it well and make it fun.
Lunch Line

It’s 6th grade week, sprint! I’m sure everyone hates that, especially Ms. Dunmire.

 More lunch time would have less chaos and more ease to get to the cafeteria knowing you’ll have time to play. 
The Math

The Total lunch time is 45 min. 

7th grade week: For a good student( everyone will be a good student once we get more time) who walks it takes 2 min. To get to the line. At the line you wait another 3 min. To finally sit down again and eat. Once again for a good student is would take 10 min. to eat. Now you can go play after 15 min. Of lunch buisness. 

For some venues it takes 3 min. To get to walking such as the gym. Play, finally.

Whistle!!! It’s time to go 10 min. Before our next class. Transition time should be after our lunch time.

In total a student gets 17-20 min. To play depending on how fast they eat.
Solutions

Adding more lunch time will solve problems our middle school has everyday. First, it will calm everyone, not rush them, knowing that they have a proper time to play, the running will stop. 

        It will also stop the hyperness we see everyday in all our classes. Teachers hate it when they’re being over talked or not have control of the lesson.

         Lastly, it will help moods, more play more happiness and positive attitude and gratitude for their free time accepting it is learning time before and after lunch.
Conclusion

There are benefits for both teachers and students if we increase the lunch time. It will help the students with their fun need and relax them knowing they have time. It will help the teachers with many solutions we have from students running to hyperactive students in class.
That’s why you should increase our lunch time!
