Mini Golf - Week 6

Mini Golf (Winter 2019)Katie McClung1 Comment

This week the Volcano Team got their project to a good testing point with the putting green and “castle” attached. Then they figured out a mechanism for catching the golf ball and returning it back to the person putting. Super cool!

The Blobby Dog Team made their dog house more safe and structurally sturdy. They even added a second floor to climb onto. Now they can putt on a multi-level course through Blobby Dog’s head!

The Dragon Golf team put their thinking caps on to design a creative way to putt the golf ball into the Dragon’s mouth before it flies down the zip line. With all of our teams combined it’s guaranteed to be a mini golf course full of surprises!

Bridger and Matthew work together on the golf ball retrieval mechanism which works like a tiny elevator :)

It’s hard to believe, but we only have two more weeks of tinkering before our final showcase and epic mini-golf tournament! Check back soon and to see more of this crews’ hard work, be sure to visit us on Flickr!
