My goal is to make a mini golf coarse with Jay and Harry N. What I am hoping to build using humming bird, Lego and Lego motors is a mini golf with the theme carnival games.
This is tape coloured with black marker. It is the part that you start to hit the ball.
Then the ball will get shot up the pipe/clown tongue and come out the back of the clown face.
The right part of the course. the ball will travel through the tunnel and will come out the other side going towards the hole.
The left part of the course. There is a tunnel on that side too. On the side where the ball comes out there is a gate that opens and closes. You have to hit the ball through the gate when the gate opens. There is also this standing up gate after the gate that opens and closes that holds the brick that controls the gate. The only reason that we have the gate that doesn’t open and close is to hold the brick of the open and close gate.
As you can see that we have put rocks at the end near the hole to make it more difficult to hit into the hole.
We thought that at the front of our course it was a bit too plain so we put photos of carnival games on to add some detail
This is a video of our windmill working.
As you can see there are little flaps for the gates to sit in place so it doesn’t fall over.
At the end of the course we put more barriers on.
We decided to put an extra part of the part that stops the ball going over towards the hole because if we didn’t it would go all the way to the hole and possibly be a hole in one. The reason I don’t want anyone to hit a hole in one is because it is about having fun the course its not about getting it in a certain amount of goes.
We made this for decoration. There was a lot of space left for something so we put it in the extra space.
As you can see, we put stilts under the sides and under the hole so it would be a bit harder to hit in the hole.
If I could improve my project I would use a bit more space because I noticed it is quite bunched up and would be harder to hit while doing the course. Another thing would be the glue. We stuck glue on the pipes and stuck it down on the astro turf, then we wanted to take the pipes off the course and then there was a lot of glue stuck on the course.
Something important about our project was that we actually had all the supplies to build it. Also that we came up with a good idea/theme to make our course better.
This is the code for our windmill.
