Description

The world of gaming particularly inspires me.

One of my all-time favorite games is Mario Kart, and I am fascinated by how the game combines speed, strategy, and skill. The colorful race tracks and dynamic characters in the game have always captured my imagination, and I am constantly inspired by the possibilities they present.

That is why I have chosen to use colored dominoes for the Energy Transfer Machine. These dominoes provide a fun and interactive way to explore the concept of energy transfer. They allow me to incorporate the bright colors and dynamic shapes that I love from the Mario Kart universe.

I used simple machines like a pulley, wedge, wood arch, inclined panel, and wood arches as obstacles.


I had to reassemble it and try 15 times until I succeeded!

Through my project, I hope to inspire others to think about energy differently and consider its vital role in our lives. I believe that art has the power to communicate complex ideas in a way that is both accessible and engaging, and I am excited to be using my creativity to promote a greater understanding of the world around us.

Thank you!

  • I see that you had to reset it over ten times! When we are working with our Energy Transfer Machines, that is one of the hardest parts is resetting and trying again. It helps us develop perseverance, which is an important skill that is needed in the world. I wonder what would happen if you had it knock something off of the table? Could it continue on the floor? Seeing it from the top makes me think of someone’s name being spelled out in Dominoes. Great job!
