Ocean Mini Golf

My goal is to make all of the parts working and make a successful mini golf course that has opening trapdoors, gates that open and close and spinning starfish with hummingbird.

this is my plan for the courses.

 

we have 3 different courses. course 1 is that you have to get past a trapdoor that flaps up and down then you have to go through a gate that opens and closes and then you get in the hole. course 2 is that you have to hit the ball up the ramp and jump into the sharks mouth and go through its body and get into the hole. course 3 is when you have to go through the reef.

we have decided to change our technology to Lego because there was no hummingbirds left this is my plan with the lego.

we have also change the courses. the first course is the same but the shark is not a course its just joining the 2 courses together. the 2nd course is the reef.

 

here are some of the parts we are using to make our mini golf course with Lego.

this is the parts working

this is the screencast of the code i used to make these work.

this is the boat course working.

this is the shark without its tail.

once gg and I made the tail and attached it to the shark we decided to paint it like a great white shark and put a hole in the throat so the ball can go out of the shark and into the reef.

 

 

for the reef we decided to make paper seaweed and fish to decorate. so far on our reef we have made all the fish and seaweed that we need and we have started to paint a piece of cardboard blue.

on the next design session we are going to add colour splotches to represent different colours of seaweed.

we have joined the boat to the reef and now we need to attach the shark.

we have now attached the shark and a few pieces of seaweed and our golf course is now finished and working.

our problems making the course was that the gates were going at different times. the problem was that one of the gates was connected to the place where the trapdoor was meant to go so we switched them and then it worked.

our other problem was that most of the time the ball couldn’t get into the pipe that joins it to the reef. we fixed that by using a real golf ball instead of a foam one so that its heavier so the only place it can go is through the pipe.

our other problem was that we couldn’t get the boat to stay on the cardboard. we tried sticky tape because we couldn’t find any hot glue sticks, then we tried masking tape because it seemed to work for attaching the shark it didn’t work. in the end i brang my hot glue gun and the 1 hot glue gun stick that i had at my house.
