my cardboard pinball game

my biggest obstacle was making the paddles for hitting the marble back up because i couldn’t figure out how to tie the elastic bands around the wooden stick which was glued to the paddle. it also originally wouldn’t be able to be aimed but i found out a way to aim it and pull it back which almost took an entire lesson. it also was a obstacle again because once you fired the paddles, you would have to regain control of them which in the time you had to regain them, the marble would already. be past the paddles.

one thing i would like to change would be the slingshot/starting system. the reason for this is because when you pull the handle it would fling the marble out of the channel so fast that it would be impossible to actually hit it back onto the main board because of the velocity and trajectory the marble had.

my biggest success was probably the scoring system. it was the most successful because it was quick and easy, plus, it was effective and was possible to score. to make the system, all it took was a couple of V-shaped cardboard pieces, hot glued into place in a sharp V. it stayed put and was tough which meant it couldn’t break easily.

overall, i think my creation was unsuccessful because it had too many errors and weaknesses compared to the strengths and fun it projected. i think it was not successful because it took too long and was a hassle ton. build.

Welcome to Your New Blog!

When you blog you create posts and posts are categorised according to your subject. Some categories have already been set up for you. If you need more categories you can add them as needed. It’s important that your posts have the following:

  • An engaging title – this should not include the name of the subject since this is referenced in the category.
  • Body – this is where you share your learning. This can include text, images, embedded videos from Dragons’ Tube or elsewhere. You should always consider how your post looks to your audience. Is it engaging? Do they want to keep reading?
  • Category – select one that has been set for you or add a new category. Posts can have more than one category e.g. Humanities and Myself as a Learner
