While researching on different Rube Goldberg machines with my group Me, Santi, and Jason we saw many different things we could try out. each person in our group found out how to make something. For example it was Jason’s idea to put the reverse ramp. He liked this because he said it was fancy and it was cool how it worked. I came up with the funnel and the basketball. I liked this because I liked how we used different balls and the funnel I made and brought. Santi made up the chain and our whole group liked it. It was a cool thing that we could to our project.
Some things were challenging and some things were easy. For example one thing challenging is planning what you are going to make, because you need to research and look for things to use in your Rube Goldberg. For our group making the whole thing is easy because me and my group met up before and we tested out and put together a lot of things and they worked first try. Somethings that didn’t work was making a marble hit a ping pong ball and then the ball drops on a ramp but the things that did work was the chain step it took only 2 tries. didn’t but after a few tries we memorized how to set it up so it wouldn’t fail next time. Also we didn’t know that we need to put things around the table we are using so we can put the funnel and make the ball go through it. We need to do this because the funnel is next to the table connected to a wall.
