Portfolio #5

If you read my last blog post, then you would know that I made a switch. I have made another switch which is even cooler then the one before!

I started a new switch and the way that it works is there will be a rectangular piece of cardboard, and one popsicle stick on each side of the cardboard, and there will be a popsicle stick that is glued to the top of the popsicle sticks, and then there is a rubber band that has a piece of cardboard with tinfoil on the bottom of it, and there is a piece of tinfoil in the middle of the bottom piece of cardboard and you push the rubber band with the cardboard attached and push down to the rectangle to light up the light.

And to build this, what I did was I used the jigsaw to cut a big rectangular piece of cardboard, and a small circle, then I cut  the tops of the popsicle sticks to make them shorter, and easier to use. Once I was done with all the cutting I started hot glueing. My first thing to hot glue was the popsicle sticks, so I hot glued each of the popsicle sticks to the opposite sides of the cardboard, and I hot glued the other popsicle to the top of the two other popsicle sticks.       Then I hot glued the rubber band to the top popsicle stick. And then it was time to start taping. The first thing I did with the tape was tape some tinfoil to the small circle, and I also taped more tinfoil to the piece of rectangular cardboard. The last, and final thing I did was tape the small circle, to the bottom of the rubber band.

So to be sure it worked I attached the wires to my swich and pushed the circular piece of cardboard down onto the tinfoil, and guess what happened… IT WORKED!

Thanks for checking out my blog tune in for my next portfolio post!
