Class 24- Finals

Today we were doing finals starting with part two. We had to make a satellite image of the school with a pink bus, the basic shape of the school, and the storage shed outside. I did this and it was a lot easier than it was at the beginning of the school year. It was a lot easier because now I know my way around Sketchup and know what to do and how to do it. This is the school.

Class 23

      Today in class I watched a video about Richard Turere. He is a boy from Kenya, lives in Nairobi National Park and is part of the Maasai tribe. In Nairobi National Park, there are no fences or gaits so other animals can walk freely in and out of the park. Animals such as zebra and gazelle attract predators like lions into the park. The lions kill not only the wild animals but also the peoples livestock.

       Boys from the ages of 6 to 9 had to take care of their fathers cows and other livestock. Richard grew up hating lions because they would kill the livestock but didn't want them to die because of want they believe spiritually. They value animals greatly. But, because of the problems the lions were causing, the warriors of their tribe had to kill the lions.Richard wanted to create a way to scare the lions away without killing them. So, he started trying different things.

       He started by trying fire. Which failed because he figured out that it helped the lions find the live stock. He then tried using a scarecrow to make the lions think he was watching the cows. That didn't work because the lions were clever. They didn't go near it the first day, but on the second day they figured out that it hadn't moved so they found out it was a scarecrow. Then one night he stayed out by the cows walking around. That night the lions didn't come. That helped him figure out how to trick the lions. They didn't like moving light. Once, he figured that out he went to work.

       Using different parts from different he made this circuit that would make the lights flash to fool the lions into thinking someone was moving around outside. He used parts from a car, a flashlight, and parts from his mother's radio, which she wasn't happy about. That night he turned them on and went to bed. He got up the next morning to see if it worked and it did.

       He had found a way to0 keep the lions away from their livestock without killing the lions. He has set up 7 in his village so far and because of his invention he got a scholarship to a very good school because of his invention. It is quite impressive that a boy from a village in Africa can do this. He figured out a way to keep the lions away with the limited supplies he had. This shows that anyone can do anything if they put their mind to it.

Class 20

Today, I finally figured out how to fix my problem. I used google earth to get a better screen capture that was straight so it would work. I have the basic square of my house now but i don't have the roof only the square part of it.

Class 18

I am still puzzled by Sketch Up. For some reason the sides of my house always come out slanted and it is starting to annoy me. I am never going to get this done. I think it might be because my picture is partially slanted and not straight on the axis so it is making the line slanted. But, I will keep on trying to get it right. Goodbye, have a nice day.
