Rube Goldberg Machines

For 4th quarter in my electives, we have been looking at hands-on engineering activities, specifically Rube Goldberg Machines.  These machines are creative ways to complete a task, and I showed the students many examples before putting them into groups to design, develop, and implement their ideas to see what did and didn’t work.  Two groups have now had successful test runs. Here are the links to their videos of their projects: https://youtu.be/W2rZ56CzP4Y and https://youtu.be/4R-TEMiunSg.  

 

Also, here is a news link today about how Rube Goldberg machines are currently being used in competitions to inspire young engineers! http://fox6now.com/2017/04/28/unique-machines-stem-forwards-rube-goldberg-machine-contests-inspire-future-engineers/
