Today, the Jr. Robot Rampagers worked hard on their poster board. The team drew pictures for the board to show the different animals in the dessert. They also stated that they focused on cold desserts and collected the information from the Great Basin Desert for their graphs.
Today the Jr. Robot Rampagers worked on naming their motorized machine. The team chose Water Driller Recycler. The name was a combination of two names, Water Driller and Water Recycler. They also wrote what their machine is for and how it would help people from both hot and cold deserts. The Water Driller Recycler also got a satellite on the top so it could know the weather.
The first meeting of the new year was one of colorful graphs and glue. The graphs containing the information of precipitation in the desert, temperature and snow fall were added to the poster board. They were glued to construction paper for a colorful border and then on the board. The group did word search puzzles that contained words related to the desert.
Their board is coming together well and has much helpful information!!
The team made graphs to show the rainfall precipitation as well as the max and min temperatures of the desert. The graphs will be put on the poster board.
The team is still fine tuning their moving object. They built storage bins in the back of the water driller. They then attached tubing that makes it look like the water that is being drilled from the cactus root is going through the hoses and into the storage bins!!
The Jr. Robot Rampagers learned how to make some of the information that was collected into a better format so it would be easier to understand. They had monthly temperatures of the Great Basin in parts of Nevada, and they also had monthly amounts of precipitation in the same area. A graph of the amount of snowfall in the Great Basin was also made easier to understand. From that graph, the team noticed that about the same time they get their heaviest snowfall (about 4 inches max) we get ours, January.
These easier to read formats will be posted on their posterboard.
Today the team started on their posterboard. They are going to show both cold and hot deserts. They also have an area that they are researching, The Great Basin Desert. The Great Basin is considered a cold desert because most of its winter precipitation is snow. Some research was done as well. RoboRose found what the definition of climate was. Technobot did a small report about deserts and The Great Basin.
