Day 6: Station Observations Part 2 #cmpfb

For Part 2 stations, I picked the more exciting three stations: Airzooka, Mass on a Spring, and Ball Drop. I gave the groups 3 minutes and 6 seconds at each station.

Functions and More State Diagrams

We started today with discussing functions. We defined it and then went onto write functions in Pyret. This part, I enjoyed very much because I found it easy to do.

Day 1- What is Hacking? In our Making, Hacking, Tinkering class, we have to Hack.

To start, I thought it would be kindContinue reading “Python Programming Unit (2019)”
