Throughout the process, they kept an engineering-design journal with entries that focused on what they accomplished, challenges they faced and how they plan to overcome their challenges. They also used their phones to document their robot-building captured in photos and videos.
Here is a reflection from a team member:
"If you have an imagination, a computer, and a HummingBird robotics set, you can make anything you want to make. HummingBird Robotics is a series of wires, lights, vibrators, sensors and motors. Throughout all of our series of making the disco room, we ran into a few problems. For instance, making the motor work with the record player was a challenge, because we needed to have a pencil lead in the disc so it will work. Also, we were going to make a whole series of notes on the Piano, and time it to every second to make the song work. Also, our LED lights were ripped, and my group tried to fix it. "
Collaboration, creativity, problem-solving, and debugging - all right here.
