Engineering Explorations – Rube Goldberg
Second-to-last day of our engineering extravaganza week and our enterprising engineers should be feeling very excited and proud as their Rube Goldberg projects are starting to come to completion. Today students continued testing and troubleshooting their actions and working to link the actions of their simple machines together within their larger contraption to ensure that their machine is iterative (repeatable) and reliable. Teams then proceeded to document their inventions so that they are ready to present their creations to the whole on our final day tomorrow.
Ask your camper: What were some obstacles you had to troubleshoot and find solutions for your invention today?
