I just finished another project in scimatics along
with the rest of my class. This one was a lot
more technical than I would’ve thought for science class but it was still pretty interesting, tricky, and fun. What we had to do was learn about the atoms and how they act if their different states of matter, so we basically focused of the kinetic and molecular theory. Our task was to code a game or simulator using scratch that shows the kinetic and molecular theory. Learning about those theories was the easy part but coding the game took some time, and I had to get help from some of my experienced classmates.Thanks to them I ended up solving my problems and got the code I was looking for. I’m going to go more deep on what exactly I had to code, some struggles I went through during this project and more.
The driving question was how can the behaviour of matter be explained by the kinetic molecular theory and atomic theory? Yes as you may expect we had to answer the driving question, and that answer will be in my game after I visually show it. I’ve taken my game down for now because of technical issues but one I finish everything I will in fact post the link in this post itself.
The curricular competencies are a big part for how I show my learning and how I accomplished this project, and I showed them in many different ways like helping others when their stuck in a code I help them fix it. If you know me personally then you would know that I had to quarantine for two weeks with a few of my friends so that was one of the challenges I faced in this project but that also gave me the opportunity to help some of those friends with the project. I helped Cole dp and Landon a bit and they helped me in return so I’m thankful I had some teamwork involved.
I also unfortunately could not use my class time efficiently cause I was at home but the time I did have I worked my butt off. The main focus of this project were how atoms act in their different states of matter so that’s why I included a few pictures of my drawings which could be called atomic models but those are definitely not top teir. For the mind map you may have to zoom in to see the text sorry, but the top are my pre-project questions, the bottom left are things I already knew before the project, and the bottom right are the things I’ve learned and some answers to those questions. That’s all for this Chemistry coding post so if you have any questions or feedback please leave a comment on this post, see y’a guys!
