Build the border around the baseplate first.
Marble maze directions.
The goal of the marble maze is to command the platform from over the web to pan or tilt in order to solve the maze by moving the white marble from the start point in the maze to the end point.
If there isn’t a clear start and end to the maze, put the marble somewhere along the northern edge and ask the team to guide it to a specific point on the southern edge.
The marble will move in the direction of least resistance (down the slope) under the force of gravity until it meets an impassable object (one of the maze walls).
The start is identified with green lego and the end with red lego.
This project uses the accelerometer on the circuit playground express board to control the x and y axes of a maze.
You will need to be deft and maneuver the marble at the right angle and speed to get it through circles and gather all of them at the center of the maze.
Marble maze's game mechanics are very simple and easy to use.
The user can guide a marble through the maze by simply tilting the circuit playground express.
Player will be the role of the marble and use arrows to move around.
Make the marble move from the beginning to the end of the maze by tilting the lego plate in different directions.
This serves as a strong base for deeper investigations into newton’s laws of motion.
Marble sizes may vary, so make sure your marble can fit through the gaps before you continue to build.
Your kids will love pushing the little marble through the maze and it’s great for small motor skills, concentration, and spatial reasoning.

Drill out the holes, and place the maze over top again to make sure all of the holes line up and the ball can fall through easily.

Players can use their voices and call instructions to help each other, but they can’t use each other’s names, or directions except the compass points.
