This activity was created by Tom Simpson at Heathwood Hall Episcopal School.
When the lights are low, the CricketBot uses its buzzer to chirp like a real cricket. The darker it is, the faster it chirps. Full daylight makes it stop chirping.
For this project, the Finch should do the following:
- If the light level is high, the beak color should be green. The Finch should not chirp at all.
- If the light level is between high and low, the beak color should be blue. The Finch should chirp low and slow.
- If the light level is low, the beak color should be red. The Finch should chirp high and fast.
Note: You can test your program by covering it with your hand and a large cardboard box.
