4th Grade Collaborative Rube Goldberg


It was really fun - Myles

While exploring motion, forces, and energy in science 4th grade students designed their own Rube Goldberg machine. Rube Goldberg was a cartoonist known for his popular cartoons depicting complicated gadgets performing simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways. 

After presenting their designs to the class the group took on the challenge of linking all of their ideas together into one machine: 

Students' reflections on the experience: 
  • It was pretty easy to set up - Leo
  • There were alot of energy transfers moving through the steps of the machine - Mary
  • It was FUN - Grayson
  • It was hard work but fun to watch - Edmund
  • There were many ideas and it was fun all together - Lucas
  • It was hard and very fun - Lexi
  • It was tricky at times but fun - Elly
  • It didn't work the first two times, but then it work on the third try - Tristan
