Rube Goldberg machines are complex machines created from household items and are designed to complete simple tasks such as closing a door, flipping a switch, or pouring water into a glass.
Interested in building your own Rube Goldberg machine? Simply find items around your house to create a chain reaction of simple machines (levers, pulleys, wedges, wheel and axles, inclined plane, and screw) that accomplish a simple task.
You're welcome to choose your own task, but if you need inspiration, check out videos from our robotics students. Don't forget to share your videos with firstname.lastname@example.org.
