Cardboard Gumball Machine

Don't forget to log your progress every day.  

Artifacts:  You will upload pictures of your creation and a video of your creation in motion to Google Classroom.  

You are expected to work on this project for a full 8 days.  If you finish early, you should spend some time working on the aesthetics of the gumball machine.  

You can utilize the following YouTube video and recreate that gumball machine, find your own video to follow, or you may create your own.  

Your gumball machine may be created from the same materials as in the video, but we also have gears, pulleys, and balsa available as well.  You may use any classroom resource with teacher permission.  

Safety with cutting utensils--In your choice writing about the website, you must include safety guidelines for using a sharp blade.  Use the PowerPoint below to help you add this information to your choice writing.  Whenever you are cutting, you must use the cutting mat underneath your project.  Please do not glue on the cutting mat.

At this point we will use hot glue for the project.
