Top Projects:


  • Minecraft Rube Goldberg Machine
    • I chose this project because my partner and I thought it was very creative and original. We are creating a Rube Goldberg reaction machine in Minecrft, a computer game that consists of hundreds of different blocks that are used to build and create anything the player can imagine. This let me learn about and how to use redstone. Redstone is a resource in Minecraft that is used as a power source, and used as power signals, like electrical wires. It is very possibly the most complex element in Minecraft, and has the most uses.

Top Reflections:


  • "The boat reaction failed, so we are going with a different plan. We are planning to build a 3-way waterfall that is activated by a pressure-sensitive rail activated by a minecart that will release the water down the glass trails."

    • I like this reflection the most because we ran into a big problem, but found a way to solve it by thinking of a brand new reaction that we are equally satisfied with.
  • "The recation failed; the lava cannot spread enough fire to uncover even half the message. But, we thought of a new idea to have a message made out of obsidian, which is immune to TNT explosions. WE plan to have this newly written message be covered in another material that will be blown away by TNT, so that just the obsidian remains."
    • I like this reflection because I felt very relieved at the time that we found an alternative solution to this problem, instead of just getting rid of the reaction all together.
