Rube Goldberg Machines

Spring is here meaning it's time for Rube Goldberg Machines!  Each spring I have my high school physics students build Rube Goldberg Machines.  I previously posted on this here.  There were many different designs completing different tasks.  Here's one that filled glass of water.

This one raised a flag.

Here's one that starting Cosmos playing on Netflix!

With a Rube Goldberg Machine, your imagination is the only limit.  The goal is to complete a very simple task through a very complicated, multiple step method.  If you're stuck inside on a rainy weekend, consider building a Rube Goldberg Machine.  It will definitely keep you busy and your kids will have fun!
