Project Overview: build a low-tech Galton board to help visualize probability (chance). Then, expand your exploration by removing or adding pegs to create different probability curves.

Project Information:

  • Project Category: Quantum

  • Difficulty Level: Intermediate

  • Time Range: 45-90 minutes




A world of infinite possibilities. That is the Intel® Future Skills vision. And this is just the beginning of your journey toward innovative thinking and doing.

Welcome to the Game of Chance project. In this project, you will get hands-on with probability by building a device of chance that sorts round beads into a binomial distribution curve (also called a bell curve. You will not know for certain where each bead will end up, but you will always get a predictable curve. 
When you are finished, share your design and feedback with us. We look forward to hearing from you!
