R.M.M. Reciecled Materials a way to the Moon

R.M.M. is a game made by young INCLUDE makers http://include-edu.blogspot.gr/. R.M.M. engages kids to develop ideas that can solve a fairy tale and make their own toys. The general spirit of Makers is “used” from INCLUDE as a tool to bring children with special educational needs and typical children together.

The makers are given a fairy tale in which they have to solve a problem. The problem is they have to find a way to go to the moon. In order to find the solution they have to create constructions with recycled materials in order to reach the surface of the moon. The game they made consists of a launcher, made out of wood, and a small moon, made out of recycled materials. Crafts, made of recycled materials can be shot to the “moon”.
The launcher as stated above is made out of wood. It consists of 2 main parts, a "bed", where the crafts will rest, and a frame. The "bed" is made of a 200mm x 90mm piece of wood and on 90° there is a 90mm by 90mm wood attached to it. The frame is a 790mm by 90mm wood and on each side there are wood pieces of 90mm high. The "bed" is attached to the frame with rubber bands so that it can shoot. The whole construction has dimensions of 790mm by 180mm by 120mm. The "moon" is made out of recycled materials and it has light inside, it will be hanged.

This game will be presented in the MAKER FAIRE ROME by INCLUDE Makers as an interactive workshop where the visitors can follow the whole process.
