Arcade Grand Opening

We had our arcade grand opening yesterday. First, we had to set up on the courts. Then we got Room 14 to come out and play first. By the end of the day all of the Middle School had played and Room 11 and Mrs Kandasamy.

It was so much fun!

The Senior School will be playing our games on Wednesday.

Inventors at work!

This week the Powerful Pandas have continued to design and make our arcade games.

We are having a lot of fun throughout this process.
As we have been putting our arcade games together, we have realised the need to make some changes to our original ideas so that they will work properly. 

Check out our progress below: 
Designing the prototype and following the technological process
Lucas, Riley and Nico's design

Making posters with instructions on how to play our game (Sean and Jayden)

Painting and making tickets for our arcade games (Lola, Piper and Jaime)

Choosing bright colours to make our games stand out (Ellie, Margaret)

We hope that you have enjoyed our progress so far and we look forward to keeping you updated next week.
Thanks from the Powerful Pandas

Coming Soon Powerful Pandas Arcade

This term the Powerful Pandas have been learning about the Ultimate Inventions. The next part of our inquiry learning is going to be applying the Technological Process when we design our own arcade games in pairs.

Today we watched a short clip about Caine's Arcade. Caine is a 9 year old boy from America who created his own arcade games.

Starting next week the Powerful Pandas will be designing their own arcade game. They will be looking at how to make their arcade game using recyclable materials.

If you have any cardboard or boxes which you no longer need then please donate them to our cause.

We look forward to updating you on our progress in the weeks to come.
