Rube Goldberg Machines Created in Physics Class

March 30, 2016

The 3rd hour Physics Class recently spent time engineering Rube Goldberg Machines. Students were given space parameters to work within, a time constraint to work within, and a minimum of twenty steps to their machine. They were given free design reign in developing their machines. The students used their previous knowledge from the study of motion, forces, machines, work, and energy during the construction process. All machines were successful.

The machines were videoed. You can watch the successes at these links:
