Rube Goldberg Project

While the seventh graders were away at Camp U-Nah-Liy-Ya, the sixth and eighth graders constructed a Rube Goldberg machine – a complicated machine to accomplish a simple task.  The task was to drop a plastic bottle into a recycle bin.  Our future engineers were hard at work for two days.  This task requires a large amount of good old-fashioned stick-to-itiveness.  Many groups achieved one success and thirty, forty or fifty failures.  The failures made the success sweeter, just listen to the cheers in the background of each video.
