  1. (Re)New Orleans with Robotics Summer Camp!

  2. Welcome to Beyond Blackboards Summer Camp! ings KRIS appy Help yourself to snacks & join in the circle uns s Create a name poem m sw SHANNON on Circle Chat: Introductions with name poems r bots Day 1: Innovation in Our World

  3. We’re excited to get to know more about you. Find an open spot at a computer – more instructions are awaiting you there! Survey Monkey Day 1: Innovation in Our World

  4. Hidden Builds & Partner Sketching • Partners gather 2 building bags. • Sit back-to-back so that both construction areas are hidden. • Both partners design & construct at the same time • 5 minute CHALLENGE: • MAKE THE TALLEST STRUCTURE POSSIBLE USING ALL OF THE MATERIALS IN YOUR BAG. • Take turns describing your structure to your partner for her/him to draw before seeing it. • When done, reveal the structure to compare/contrast drawing to real structure (partners switch roles & repeat). Day 1: Innovation in Our World

  5. Turning Ideas Into Action Apollo 13 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNDuGuerpf8 Day 1: Innovation in Our World

  6. LIGHT UP YOUR IMAGINATION! • Observe the object closely.What kind of object is it? • Describe what you see.What is interesting, innovative, trendy, notable, or surprising? • Connect with what you already know.Have you seen anything like this before? Do you have any experiences with something like this? • Generate and represent your ideas about the object.What do you think is or was the purpose of this object? When, why, and for who do you think it was created? How does it work? What might be inside to make it work? What does the inside look like? • Compare and contrast to other objects.How is this object similar or different to other objects? What analogies can be made about this object? • Generate questions about the object.What questions do you still have about the object? What do you think you have figured out about the object? Spend 10 minutes observing & investigating – jot down responses to these questions so that you can share them with others. Day 1: Innovation in Our World

  7. NAME THOSE PARTS Day 1: Innovation in Our World

  8. DESIGN A HAND-POWERED FLASHLIGHT How long does the flashlight stay powered? Is there a way to design a hand crank to make it easy to turn? USE LEGO parts below to create your own hand-cranked flashlight. Why would you want to design & build a hand-powered flashlight? What is the size of the flashlight? Can you get the light bulb(s) to shine? Can you modify the design to make cranking even easier? Who would use it? PHASE 1 PHASE 3 PHASE 2 Day 1: Innovation in Our World

  9. IMAGES of INNOVATION“a picture is worth a 1,000 words” Photos win Pulitzer Prizes because we imagine they can change the world…Think of some of your favorite pictures. How do you see innovation & inventions in your daily life? Capture & create pictures to share using your very own digital camp camera! How does my digital camp camera work? Talk about responsibilities of having a camp camera Write your name on the sticker & tag your camera Day 1: Innovation in Our World

  14. Day 2: Exploration Stations

  15. EXPLORATION STATION: GEARS • Magnetic Gears • Arrange the gears on a magnetic surface & make them move together. • Are the gears moving at the same speed? • If not, what gear(s) move faster & what gear(s) move slower? • Can you tell the ratio of speeds between the gears? • Virtual Gears • Investigate how different gear trains work using the “constructopedia ” website: http://www.lego.com/education/school/default.asp?l2id=3_3&pageName=4_1 • Consider why you would want to use one type of gear train instead of another. • Use at least one model from the “constructopedia” to design your own gear train(s). • LEGO Gears • Discover all of the different types of gears in LEGOs. • Look closely at the LEGO gear train models. Get a feel for how the gears interact with each other. • Build your own gear train(s) inspired by at least one of the physical builds. Day 2: Exploration Stations

  16. EXPLORATION STATION: STRUCTURES • Build a wall a minimum of five bricks high by eight bricks long. • Will the strength of the wall be affected by how the wall is built? • Test the strength of the wall by dropping the wall three feet from the floor. • Did the wall break in to many pieces? • Rebuild the wall and try again. • Try and rebuild the LEGO wall with maximum overlapping. • Repeat the drop test – does the wall stay mostly in one piece? Bridge Building: Build a LEGO bridge segment that has top surface that has 10 by 20 studs. The top surface should be four bricks high. The bridge should allow water to flow under it on the 10 stud length side. Design the bridge so that area of 10 one by one bricks of “water” could pass under the bridge segment. Day 2: Exploration Stations

  17. EXPLORATION STATION: BUILDS IN BINS Day 2: Exploration Stations

  18. EXPLORATION STATION: ZIPLINES Why would zip lines be useful? How do zip lines work? http://www.ehow.com/how-does_4610292_zip-line-work.html How do I set up a zip line? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMZaoIwsaz8 • BUILDING TO BALANCE: • Construct a zip line by tying a 5 ft string at a 20° - 30° angle. • Use the LEGO pieces provided & construct a “vehicle” that can transport the weighted pieces (people rocks etc), across the zip line. • Sketch your design before you build it. Who might use zip lines? Day 2: Exploration Stations

  19. EXPLORATION STATION: MBTI • Learn more about yourself & other campers! • Take the MBTI quiz on the computer. • When you finish, you will get a 4 letter result. • Pick up the cards with your 4 letters & their descriptions on them. • Find a partner & trade cards (you will read about your partner & vice versa). • Read aloud the card descriptions to your partner. Does s/he agree with the results? Does each letter description seem to accurately describe her/him? Day 2: Exploration Stations

  20. “In 2005, the American Society of Civil Engineers issued a report card, grading various categories of U.S. infrastructure. THE AVERAGE GRADE WAS “D.” How can we help improve the grade? Day 3: Innovation & Local Natural Disasters

  21. ENGINEERING ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE 20th Century Electrification Automobile Airplane Water Supply & Distribution Electronics Radio & Television Agricultural Mechanization Computers Telephone Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Highways Spacecraft High-performance Materials Imaging Household Appliances Health Technologies Petroleum & Petrochemical Technologies Laser & Fiber Optics Internet Nuclear Technologies Day 3: Innovation & Local Natural Disasters

  24. Reading Images Examine the photograph for 10 seconds. Describe what you see. Use your hand lens to look closely at each of the sections separately. Divide the picture into 4 sections. Can you tell the location? When might this have been taken? What is happening? What objects are featured? What technology do you see? Who is in the picture & what are they doing? What questions does it make you ask? Day 3: Innovation & Local Natural Disasters

  27. FRIDGES GONE FOUL! • Have you ever had something go bad in the refrigerator? • Imagine everything going bad in your refrigerator – in tens of thousands of refrigerators – all at the same time, for months at a time… • During natural disasters, like the ones we just saw in the historical photographs of floods in Austin, loss of electricity is big problem. There are lots of engineering challenges that resulted from Hurricane Katrina. Katrina Refrigerators are infamous for being one of the most daunting engineering challenges. Day 3: Innovation & Local Natural Disasters

  28. FIX THE FOUL FRIDGE FUNK! With the growing need to care for the environment, FEMA has teamed up with the State of Louisiana to develop the Rescue robot for moving Funky Fridges. We, the engineers of Beyond Blackboards, will create models of rescue bots that can help safely move the thousands of funky fridges filled with maggots & toxic waste. Current clean up vehicles require the use of workers to drive around and collect the recyclables. Design a Rescuebot that will gather Funky Fridges from the streets & collect them in one location so that they can be recycled. Day 3: Innovation & Local Natural Disasters

  30. EVERYDAY OBJECTS THAT SENSE THE WORLD AROUND US • Observe the object closely.What kind of object is it? • Describe what you see.What is interesting, innovative, trendy, notable, or surprising? • Connect with what you already know.Have you seen anything like this before? Do you have any experiences with something like this? • Generate and represent your ideas about the object.What do you think is or was the purpose of this object? When, why, and for whom do you think it was created? How does it work? What might be inside to make it work? What does the inside look like? How does it sense the world? How does it react to sensing the environment? • Compare and contrast to other objects.How is this image similar to or different from other objects? What analogies can be made about this object? • Generate questions about the object.What questions do you still have about the object? What do you think you have figured out about the object? Day 4: Sensing the World Around Us

  31. Concrete Creations, Relations, & Floatation • HUNGRY to HELP! • Make chocolate asphalt cookies • Conduct 1 of 3 different concrete experiments • When you are finished with your experiment, put popsicle sticks standing in the wet cement of 1 cup (per student) so that you can use it later to build with for the mat. The other concrete will be crushed or tested in other ways. Day 6: Thinking Locally, Acting Globally
