    A Digital Test-Your-Strength Carnival Machine

    Summary:

    Students create their own digital version of a test-your-strength game, known as carnival hammer game or high striker. They use motion (acceleration) sensors to measure force and understand the underlying physical principles.

    Objective:

    • Students will be able to:
    • Understand how acceleration relates to force
    • Implement a program to process sensor data
    • Design an engaging user interface (UI)
    • Design a device with both hardware and software
    • Choose methods for processing data
    • Iterate and improve design solutions
    • Improve problem-solving and communication skills

    Required Prior Knowledge:

    Familiarity with the concept of acceleration is helpful.
