Rube Goldberg #1 – Getting Started

In Mrs. Edwards’ 5th grade class, Mrs. Edwards decided to have her class: plan, design, and build a Rube Goldberg machine. (A Rube Goldberg machine is a long set of steps that completes a simple task). The Rube Goldberg machine needed a detailed sketch of the child’s planned contraption, eight varied steps, send a clear video and showing the child’s successes and fails.

For my Rube Goldberg machine the first thing I did was research. Here are some links I looked at:

My favorite one is: https://www.jconline.com/story/news/2018/04/23/purdue-teams-magically-delicious-entry-wins-rube-goldberg/542883002/

These links gave me inspiration. If these people in the videos worked that hard to make a Rube Goldberg project, why couldn’t I?
