For the final project of Technology, we had to make something called an automata. An automata is a machine in which you spin a stack and something on top of the box moves. For my automata I wanted to do something related to sports. After a lot of thought, I decided to make someone shooting a basketball. In my diagram I started with drawing a box and the wheels inside. I am going to make is so that the stick is connected to a wheel and the wheel pushes up the basketball player. I then decided to draw the payer and the hoop. I decided to make the basketball player shoot it by connecting the arms to wires when the player goes up, the ball comes down and vice versa. I now started building the base which is the box. I made a hollow box and then held up each corner with cardboard. Once I put the wheels in I had the stick going up and down, so my base was complete.
