Hi everyone! I’ve been working on an Android app called SidewalkHeat instead of going onto a web browser. It will still work on the web browser, but this is an extra touch to make it easier.
Here is the prototype download:
Updated version v1.1: SidewalkHeatv101.apk
Mac version: SidewalkHeat.app
After downloading the file, you can copy it into your Android device and use a APK installer app from the Play Store. If there are any problems, please notify me.
I’ve made a new update (v1.1) that automatically connects to the PiProject network. We still need to do some testing on this though.
I have put the link above and here:
I’ve made a new app for Macs. I did some testing and it works!

Hi GW STEM Club!
Our Regionals Robotics Competition was AWESOME! Our whole team was amazed at how we worked so hard to get everything done. We even took the 2nd overall team in the competition. Its gets even better……. WERE GOING TO THE STATE COMPETITION! BECAUSE OUR TEAM DID SO GOOD, WE WERE CHOSEN TO MOVE ON TO THE STATE COMPETITION. Im so proud for everyone on our team working so hard all year to make that one day AWESOME! Great job GW STEM!!!!!!!!!
The STEM club (Team #5642) finally has gotten through the regional tournament with awesome results! Team members’ throats were hoarse at the end of the tournament by cheerleading.
First, at 9:00, we went to the project judging room and showed off our skit with our project. After all this hard work, we created a brick that heats itself with solar power. The judges were simply shocked.
Robot Design was a tremendous session. We impressed the judges with our modular design, leading us up to 1st place.
In the afternoon, after a belly-filling lunch of soup and sandwiches, we placed our robot in the robot game matches. Matches 2 and 3 were not that bad, but Match 1 was much better! Match 1 scored us over 300 points, yet we were done when the timer still had 30 seconds left! It seemed our modular design did help a lot.
It did turn out to be a great success. We got 3rd place in Robot Performance and 1st place in Robot Design!
We had a very successful meeting on Sunday. For the mission team we finished a very hard section and for the project team we got some scripting done for the “skit” we are making for the competition. The highlight of the meeting was the AMAZING Tex-Mex Soup! We all loved the soup and the wraps. Thanks SO much Mrs. Baginski!!!!
Today (November 9, 2013) we drove to SuperGreen Solutions in Englewood to take a look at their innovations with solar power, water power, and wind power. They showed us their showroom, which contains a lot of things. A huge solar panel that generates 250 watts stands in one corner. Near the entrance, there is a unit consisting of two solar panels that are attached by hinges so you can fold them for easy transportation. A light bulb sitting on the table can power a lamp and charge a Samsung phone at the same time. You just plug that lamp into a waterproof solar panel (no, the lamp isn’t waterproof) to charge it.
Later, we showed them our innovation. Our solar heated walkway charges during sun using the solar panels. When it’s cold outside, you just turn on the heat from the comfort of your home. SuperGreen Solutions told us that this was an amazing idea and that it really would shape the future. Of course, they said we need to shrink costs, but at least we’re getting a start!.
The showroom also has other stuff. They feature LED bulbs which are brighter and more efficient. There is a water generator that filters dehumidified air into drinking water. They have more efficient water heaters, and eco insulation.
Their website is: www.supergreensolutions.com.
Thanks so much Mrs. Price for the really awesome supplies you brought. Great job everyone with all the work this week. Keep it up.
We had a great meeting today with a lot of progress. As you guys might know, every Sunday we have a nice dinner with the whole team. This week we had TACOS TACOS TACOS, courtesy of Chef Baginski.
Hi everyone! I know this is random, but I was browsing the internet, and I found something really cool, the concept of a “Phone Blok.” What it is, is a smartphone in which each component is an easily replacable “Blok”, so you can customize your own phone! It is not a reality yet, but another idea for is letting anyone design bloks, so you could run different OS and have a phone that is truly yours. You could also do thing let add a nicer camera if you enjoy taking pictures, or not having something like a camera in exchange for a larger battery! Here is a link to a youtube video about the topic —> http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oDAw7vW7H0c Also visit phonebloks.com for more info. BTW, is there a meeting on Thursday?
We all had a great meeting today! It was one of the most progressive meetings yet. We completed many key parts that will allows us to move on. And… Mrs. Ruhl’s Lasagne Ruhled!!!!!!!!!!! It was one of the best foods I’ve ever had in my life! We are also working very hard on the project, where are almost done putting the actual sidewalk together. I am so happy that EVERYTHING is finally being put together. Cant wait for next meeting.
