(5 min)Teams test marble mazes as a team. Identify trouble areas that need to be addressed by putting a post-it on the trouble area.
(15 min) Team members that have trouble areas on their panel have 15 minutes to try to correct. Team members with no trouble areas go to computer lab, get started on their blog homework.
(10 min) Class comes together as a whole and marble mazes are tested 10 times each. Video is to be captured for the blog post described below.
Marble Maze Project – final project blog post
This is to be completed in class or as homework by each team member.
This blog post is to be written in complete sentences and should include the following:
1. Describe what you learned over the course of this project. LIST ALL TOOLS YOU USED in this project and tell your readers which of these tools you used for the first time. How did you improve as a builder in this project?
2. Consider all of the tools that you used and tell us which tool you feel most comfortable with, and why. Then blog about which tool you would like to become more comfortable with using.
3. Describe what challenges you encountered in this project and how you overcame them? Consider and explain how your design changed over time. If you could do the Marble Maze project all over again what would you do differently?
Each TEAM should upload a video to YouTube that shows a successful run of the marble through their maze and the entire board. Embed this video in your blog post. Follow this link if you need help with embedding a YouTube clip in a WordPress blog post.
