Rube Goldberg as a Component in Science, Math, and Critical Thinking

If you’ve never done Rube Goldberg projects with your students, I can tell you from personal experience that it is challenging from both the student and the teacher perspective. But, I can tell you that there is nothing more rewarding than watching the final “machine” be a success and the students’ faces beaming with pride. The machine below is a much larger than a normal class might undertake, but it is a great example of the critical thinking that went on throughout the entire design process. Enjoy.
