3rd Rube Goldberg blog post

My partner Gracie and I were so excited to start building our Rube Goldberg project.  To start, we built what we had planned to do on our sketch. We had to adjust a little because the tools didn’t exactly work the way we thought they would.  We were able to work together to try different things to find something that worked. We also got frustrated at times, especially with the dominoes that kept knocking each other down.  We had to reset them each time. We have not finished building yet we are still going through different options.

 

We will keep updating you through the process.

Blog post #2

 

Me and my partner Gracie were so excited to sketching. We started! All was going well until step #4. We were stuck. We kept on stressing out. We thought we wouldn’t make the deadline.

 

Finally! We got ideas. One night, Gracie and her mom were looking on the computer for ideas. It was a miricale. They found a video with a bunch of inspiration that lead to other videos. From there, it was easy. We got the sketch finished.

I will keep on updating you on the process.

1st Rube Goldberg Blog Post

My class has start the rube goldberg unit!I am excited for the process. I always have been looking forward to doing this project.

To start, we had to make a few decisions. One of them was if you were going to work with a partner, or alone. If you were working with a partner, how many? And have to live 5-10 minutes away.

I decided to work with one partner. Her name is Gracie. I chose Gracie because she is very nice, flexible, and kind-hearted. She lives 3 minutes away from where I live.    

The next thing we had to decide is what our goal is going to be. A goal is a simple task that the Rube Goldberg machine would have to complete. Our goal is to get a car down a ramp.

Soon, we will start sketching. I’ll update you what comes next!
