What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

These easy to build model fairground rides are a fun way to get children quickly engaged in developing their programming skills. The three models provide opportunities for pupils to develop their coding knowledge and progressively introduce elements such as loop, variables, if then statements, inputs, outputs and algorithms.

Controlling robots and models is a great way to learn programming. Children get an immediate and concrete response to their coding and can quickly see the impact of any changes they make.

The problem for many teachers is that the children either don't have the skills to design and make their own models or if they do, then it takes so long designing and making their model, that there is insufficient time left to spend on programming it. 

Crumble controllers are a fantastic and easy to use computer control interface. They are programmed using free scratch software and once programmed can be unplugged from the computer, allowing the models to operate independently.

Information on Crumble controllers is here

All you need to build the models is a glue gun or for the more patient you can use PVA glue.

Risks and challenges

I don't really have any worries in this area. Managing the packaging and postage will be a novelty but not a difficulty!
