I absolutely love Rube Goldberg machines! The seventh and eighth grade students are currently participating in a friendly Rube Goldberg class competition. They are required to create a theme that uses 10-20 cause/effect relationships to complete a task. This little boy's Monster Machine is our inspiration. Way to go Audri...very impressive!
This one is pretty cool too! It took 6 months to make. Unfortunately, my students do not have this much room, so each team is limited to a 2 ft. by 3 ft. space.
