Bread and coin division & Argument in the court

Programming level 1

Make a visualisation of dividing the bread and the coins & Build the environment and the people in the court

P1

How to build

The bread and the coins

  • Use cubes of different colors for the breads
  • Make a big enough bread (so that you can take them apart into 3 parts each)!

The court

  • Use cubes for building the environment, props and characters

Programming level 2

Make a visualisation of the coins’ division & Arguers and the judge in the court

P2

How to build

Coin's division

  • Use cubes for the bread. Divide them as Ioan and Stefan did.
  • LED lights are good for guiding attention!
  • Use 2 robots with 5-5 LEDs and 1 touch sensor. The first robot displays Ioan’s coins, the second robot displays Stefan’s coins.
  • For both robots, the first push of the touch sensor shows how Ioan would divide the coins, the second shows how Stefan would, the third shows the judgement.

Arguers and the judge in the court

  • Build 2 arguers and the judge

  • All of them should be able to move their arms up and down with servo motors

  • Use touch sensors to start their movement (like in a puppet show)

Make a visualisation of the bread dividing & Arguers should stop talking as judge demands

P3

How to build

Bread dividing

  • Use cubes for the bread and LED for the coins. Divide the bread as Ioan and Stefan did.
  • LED lights are good for guiding attention!
  • Use 1 robot with 10 LEDs of 2 colors and 1 touch sensor. The 2 colors show Ioan’s and Stefan’s coins.
  • The first push of the touch sensor shows how Ioan would divide the coins, the second shows how Stefan would, the third shows the judgement.

Court

  • Debate can be shown by movement of arms and/or head, AND the voice of the debaters
  • Periodic up and down movement of the arms, shaking the head a number of times with servo motors, and a buzzer to make the debaters loud
  • The two arguers are connected to the same motherboard, while the judge is connected to another
  • The judge bangs his gavel on a touch sensor after a certain time – this causes the buzzers to stop

Programming level 4

Coin dividing robot & Arguers should stop talking as judge demands

P4

How to build

Coin dividing robot

  • Build a robot, that can sort the cubes into two groups
  • The robot should count the cubes it sorts into either group.
  • Connect 1 touch sensor to your robot – the first push of the touch sensor shows how Ioan would divide the coins, the second shows how Stefan would, the third shows the judgement.

Arguers should stop talking as judge demands

  • Like in P3, but the scene doesn’t end when they fall silent. After the judge bangs his gavel, they fall silent, then start arguing again shortly after
  • The judge bangs his gavel, one more time than before.
  • This continues until the robots are turned off.
