I really enjoyed our newest and most recent expert lecture. A woman named Jackie came in for our most recent expert lecture. She was from Curios On Hudson. She came in and told us about herself and her hobbies and activities that she enjoyed doing. For example of that she told us how she was really into Harry Potter. She taught us about her job being a mechanical engineer. But my favorite part was when we made kazoos out 2 rubber bands 2 popsicle sticks 1 sheet of paper and 2 straws. She also taught us about vibration. I really liked expert lecture 5 🙂
Harley and I recently have rebuilt our entire Rube Goldberg! We got it to where we were before hunter destroyed it but we are making it longer. Instead of the golf ball hitting and knocking over the tower we realized that the golf ball doesn’t have enough force and power to knock over the tower so we set up a few dominoes instead of the tower. We are brainstorming ideas on what we can do with the dominoes.
This is my first Rube Goldberg post and this is what my machine does. We have on of those circular swirly marble maze pieces taped to the desk. We will drop the marble in it. The marble will swirl around and go thought the opening at the bottom where we taped a card board tube. The marble will go through the tube witch where we set up dominoes ( jenga pieces ). The dominoes will rap around a chair and the elevate by going over video game boxes that we stacked up. It will go onto a container flipped upside down and then the dominoes will nudge a hot wheels car. The hot wheels car will then speed up do a loopy loop. After the loopy loop the hot wheels car with all its momentum will come out of the loopy loop and take a mid air jump hitting a golf ball where the car lands and the the golf ball is on a slanted hot wheels track. The golf ball will pick up momentum and hit the miniature tower with a dog treat on top and knock it over because we have placed a dog bowl behind it so I and Harley’s final goal was to put a dog treat in the dog bowl. But unfortunately Harley’s older brother Hunter got mad for no reason at all and destroyed everything. Harley and I are hoping to rebuild it today.
I thought garage band was cool because I desovered all these new and cool hidden tricks and features. An example of that is I messed around with the settings on the piano and it made this weird but cool sound.
I liked studying dvorak. And I also like listening to his jaws piece. I thought it was really cool when all the instruments clashed it sounded like an argument.
