Unit:  Ea

Take engineering lessons home with this Rube Goldberg machine kit for small groups.

Teach students that the pursuit of knowledge never sleeps, even when schools are closed. In this kit, students learn about the real-life scientist Rube Goldberg and the complex machines he designed for accomplishing simple, everyday tasks. They'll discover how simple machines work, like levers, pulleys, and wedges, then combine them to create their own Rube Goldberg machine at home! Whether the end goal is flipping a light switch or turning the page of a book, students will work through the engineering design process to brainstorm, test, tweak, and retest solutions to solve problems.

Included materials allow students to engineer a popsicle stick bridge, watch kinetic energy transfer from domino to domino, create a swinging pendulum with a golf ball and string, design a trolley with ABS wheels for transporting cargo, and much more!
