Please emphasize that all previous work (items 1-3) must now be finished and ready for marking on Monday. Item #4 (summative report) is new today and will be what most students should be working on. Please remind them to rename this document before sharing it with me, and I expect to see it shared with me this morning so I can monitor the students' progress and provide feedback.

The priorities are:
  1. Finish Mousetrap Car SketchUp model. Ensure there are dimensions shown for all objects, that is drawn to scale, and that all objects are labelled.
  2. Mousetrap Car Assignment
  3. Photoshop Elements Masking Assignment
    1. Create a "Technology-themed" title page.

Half the class will be working with the peer tutor on robotics. If finished the "triangle" activity, modify the program so it traverses a figure 8, ending up at the same spot. 

The other half are to carry on with the activities in the Arduino workbook. The switch activity must be modified so that one switch flashes the LED at a low rate, the other switch at a medium rate, and both switches at a fast rate. 

Old priorities:
  1. Grok: Python: Disease Outbreak
  2. Networking section in Digital Overdrive. 
  3. Cool Tech #2
  4. If not already done, Finish theory portion of Petruzella 1-1 Safety Activity Pack (see link on daybook and in email). An updated resource has been emailed to the students.
