Remember the days of the old school yard

By Tanushri and Lana
Year 10 STEAM students

Last term for the Innovative Lab, we had to choose a childhood game that our parents used to play. Our group chose Space Invaders. After selecting a game, we had to recreate it as a physical arcade game using cardboard. We had to have one or more components that were 3D printed or laser cut. After at least four weeks of hard work and collaborating, we finally had finished our project.

Something interesting we learned is how to use the Makey-Makey microprocessor with a circuit. We ran into some challenges with the space maze; some of the problems were that we ran out of copper tape and we had to use foil instead. The pulley system didn’t work, so we had to think outside the box and problem solve. Although, in the end, we had a great experience, and many people played our game and had fun.
