Year Five have finished their maze project using the control equipment, ‘Makey Makey’. The challenge was to use the control device to start a timer on ‘scratch’ which was triggered at the start of the maze. They also needed to ensure that, at the end of the maze, the metal ball triggered the timer to stop. This was very tricky but the teams worked hard to puzzle out how to make this work.
The second stage of the challenge was to adapt the maze so that the metal ball took exactly 10 seconds to complete its journey through the maze. You can see from the photos that some of us got very close indeed! This whole project took a lot of teamwork and all of the groups had to continuously adapt and refine their work to get their finished products to work successfully. Great perseverance Year Five.
