Rube Goldberg Machine
Transcript of Rube Goldberg Machine
Flexibility in Our Design
Requirements & Constraints
No larger than a table
Limited amount of supplies
Needs to be no more than 30 seconds long
Relevance to Our Machine
Safety & Mitigations
Our First Modification
Our Machine in Action:
A Rube Goldberg is a contraption, invention, or device that is deliberately overdone and engineered to complete a simple task, usually in a chain reaction.
Driving Question: How can we model the mathematics behind motion, forces and energy using simple machines?
Ball is a "no-go"
Machine is simpler than other machines
We are the ending team
There is a chance that the marble wont trigger our team
Ramp is elevated
Lights are fragile
Lights heat up really fast
Marble connection from team nine
The projector is really bright
Make bowling ball more appealing
Hide wires of makey makey
New Tech Sign
Bowling ball travel down special bowling ball ramp
No small ball or PVC pipe
At the end of machine
New Tech sign
9.6 cm (height)
12.6 cm (height)
132.2 cm (length)
How can we model the mathematics behind motion, forces, and energy using simple machines?
-How steep a line is
- Slope= rise/run
What is it?
Difficulties with ramp
