Cardboard Game Console

Two pieces of a cardboard craft sit on a dark surface. The left-hand piece shows the inside of a box/ pencils, strings, bottle caps, and an illustrated paper roll are visible. The right-hand piece of cardboard has cut-out holes to make a cover for the craft.

Play a video game while staying off the screen…by building your own cardboard game console! 

Design a game level and character, then fabricate and install the moving mechanism. This tinkering project will challenge your creativity and construction skills, while allowing you to apply your knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM).
