Along side the Flights of Fancy brief we have also been given the marble run. The task of which has been set, We have been placed into groups and given the task of building a marble run, of which the marble is to run for 20 to 30 seconds. Once placed in groups we was briefed on the project, we are to provide evidence of our research, work and development until we reach our final finished marble run. Once we was put into groups our group was brainstorming ideas to come up with something new and brilliant. I came up with this idea that we was to each decided on a part of the run to make, then each go off and construct the part of the run. The reason why we thought this was a good idea was because, when the marking comes we are going to be assessed through our own individual contribution, this way it keeps the contribution of each part to an equal level.
We brainstormed a few ideas to help come up with something good.
This is the evidence to show our brainstorming ideas, this is my copy and the one I took to take notes down, everyone else has their own version. In the end we used the fair ground theme for our marble run and we are going to use the Tim Burton as a style to make it more Gothic and classic styled.
We each decided to build our own part to give each other a fair way to keep the effort the same, as with the team effort score. We decided to have a helter skelter, Ferris wheel, merry-go-round and dodgems. We all decided which part we wanted to build, Sabine chose the Helter slelter, Sam chose the Ferris wheel, Siobhan chose the merry go round and I chose the dodgems. Here is a plane on what the final run could start to look like.
