This column is for students to begin their research of ideas for Add-Ons. We are high school students in a level 3 CTAE Engineering course. We are not going to limit ourselves to sticking on flat objects that are real of models of real objects. That would be too simplistic for high school students.
Start with cardboard ideas such as this marble run -- LINK
Then get fancy and watch a tutorial with groovy music on bending metal tracks and using a soldering iron...LINK
Still not inspired? Peek at the Things to FInish on the Budget, then the Ideas for Addons...there's definitely something for a level 3 Engineering student.

Ideas for Addons
What are these scientists famous for? How can it be modeled?(start here)
Marble Run Lifts, Elevators, Cams, etc.
LINK 15 - stringless pendelum - Bruce Yeany. This guy's Youtube has TONS of great, simple physics demos, all handmade. 1 second, 2 second, 3 second....he even uses pool balls that are the number of seconds. Could this go on a letter using marbles?
Automata, Cams, etc.
Physics, Gadgets, etc.
