Our project

So for the last two weeks we been in France we have been working on a project, the project is to make a cylinder "go out" and then another cylinder push that cylinder so the rubber band move to the left then after that the first cylinder goes in again and the second cylinder pull that cylinder back to its starting posision.
The first step was to deside how big the frame should be and then messure up the aluminium bars
Here we saw the aluminium barsto the right lenght.
When we have all the bars in the right lenght we control check to see how it will look.
On this step we put the bars together with screws.
Here we have the componets we will use, the black "thing" to the left is a directional valve and with help of air pressure it push the cylinders out and in.
The green and red buttoms to the right are the start and stop buttoms
This is a picture of the band we are suposed to move, so the first cylinder will "go out" right beside one of the cubes then the other cylinder push the other cylinder so the band moves.
Right now we are waiting for our PLC to arrive and then we have to program it so the cylinders move when we press the start buttom. PLC is shortning for Programmable Logic Controller.



This Tuesday we had no school but instead we went on a trip with Mark to Andorra which is a small country inbetween France and Spain. The view on the way there and from the city we was in was crazy, one of the best i seen in my life. We arrived there 12'o clock and we was started to get hungry so we went to a resturant and ate. It was a really good buffe and we all got full up from all the food, desert and coffe. After we had ate we wanted to go up in the mountains. Sadly we only had one hour to go up in the mountain so we just saw alittle bit and after that we looked around in the city for another hour. We spread out beacuse everyone wanted to look at diffrent things. 3 o'clock we meet up at the car and drove towards home again. Mark droped us off at a super market 20 min from our apartment beacuse we hadn't had time to buy food so we had to do that fast before heading home.


We dident do much this Thursday but some of us went to the gym. We played cards for the most, there was not much to do when it's raining and cloudy.
We ended school and we went home to the apartament, we were playing cards and someone looked out the window and we saw police busses i don`t know how many but there was quiet a few.

The Space Museum

On Thuesday we hade a day of from school so we was at the space museum with Monsieur Wolf and Monsieur Marc Garrigou, it was and great experience, we learned alot and there was also cool things to see and do. But the thing i liked the the most to do was the "Walking on the Moon", and the Imax movie was also very intresting beacuse we learned alot about space but most about Mars and the astronouts. We saw a modell of the robot thats on mars right now in full scale, it was built by teenages from diffrent schools, two parts on it was from lycée saint-exupéry whice is the school we are going to. We also saw a modell of the first space station ''MIR'', it orbited around earth between the 80s to year 2001
