Starting in Fall 2020, Project Make It has challenged St. Louis students 5-12th grade to design and construct a playable miniature golf courses. The mini golf challenge is a 16 class robotics style build where students work in small teams to design and construct mini-golf holes out of cardboard. Each hole will feature motors and lights that will be programmed by the students. At the end of the challenge, we will put all the holes together to create a playable course and have a celebration with a judged competition.
