Introduction: SWISHHH

Welcome to SWISHHH!

Step 1: Indroduction

SWISHHH helps children who suffer from Dyspraxia, which helps them to develop and improve their movement. This will help them develop those strategies, which will help them grab things. In our project by having four hoops in where the kids will be able to make a hoop with balls that will be provided. Once the Kids are able to make it into the hoop there will be a green LED that will let them know that they have made it in. Therefore they will feel couraged to do it again and do it again.

Our Brainstorming Process was not going great at first after we had heard that our project had to be a dispenser we didn't have any ideas. It felt like all of our ideas were shut down. As we went on slowly and slowly we started to realize we could do what motivated us while still incorporating a dispenser. At first, each of the 3 members came up with 3 different ideas then we 3-6-3 that help us shorten our ideas and we went from having 9 ideas to shortening it to 2 ideas. Since we couldn't choose we all decided to incorporate both ideas and come up with a new idea and that is how we came up with the SWISHHH.

Step 2: Arduino Materials

Arduino Breadboard Materials:

Step 3: Structure Materials

Structure Materials:

  • Basketball Hoops
  • Wood (Ethier Oak Wood or Maple Wood)
    • 2 pieces of
      • 26 inches by 18 inches
        • In one of the pieces, there would be a rectangle that is 6" by 4".It would be located 10" down and 3" away from both sides (Shown in the back Isometric View)
    • 1 piece of the following:
      • 12 inches by 36 inches
      • 40 inches by 8 inches
      • 8 inches by 12 inches
      • 26 inches by 8 inches (Cut one side to equal 10.77 inches as shown in image 2 (Side))
      • 26 inches by 40 inches
      • 6 inches by 21 inches
      • 8 inches by 35inches(In one of the pieces there would be cuts that are 6" by 2".The rectangles would be 4" down and 1" to the side until the last piece the would be 1" left .(Right to left ,Shown in the front View))

      • 8 inches by 36 inches

      • 36 inches by 26 inches

Step 5: Collect Your Materials

Once you collect your materials, make sure and cut out all the pieces you will need.

Step 6: Bottom Half

  1. The first thing to start putting together is the bottom half. You will start by grabbing the piece of wood that is 40" by 26" and lay it down on the floor.(As you go you will be attaching the pieces to the bottom)
  2. Grab the 12" by 8" piece of wood and attach it to the 26" by 12" with the slide cut. You will be attaching it with 3 nails/screws. (Two a little before the edge and then one in the middle.Reference Image 1)
  3. Next, you will grab the 40" by 8" add attach it to the pieces mention on the second step. It will be attached on the other edge of the 26" by 12" .You will add 2 nails/screws.(Image 2)
  4. Then you will add the 8" by 8" cube and attach to the edge of the 40" by 8".You will use 2 nails/screws.(Image 3)
  5. Next, for the bottom portion, you will need to add the 36" by 8" and attach it to the 8" by 8" using 2 nails/screws.(Image 4)

Step 7: Top

  1. You will start by adding one side the 18" by 26".The side that doesn't have any cut would be right next to the 8" by 8" square and would be attached by using 2 nails/screws. (Image 1)
  2. Next, you will get the second piece of 18" by 26" with the cut and you will attach it right next to the 12" by 8".Using 3 nails/screws.(Two close to the edges and one in the middle. (Image 2)
  3. Then you will add the 6" by 21" and you will attach it from the right side cut to the top side cut with 3 inches down. (Image 3-5)
  4. Then you will add the 35" by 8" when you attach it to make sure that there are 4 inches going down before the rectangle cut. You will attach it from the sides using 2 nails/screws. (Image 6)
  5. Then you will attach the back which is the 26" by 36"
  6. Finally, you will attach the 36" by 12" and make sure there is a cut at 16" from the right side at the back and the but would be 4" by 6".

Step 8: You Are Done!

You can now enjoy playing with it.
