Rube Goldberg

Rube Goldberg from simon ashby on Vimeo.
Here are three examples of our Rube Goldberg machine plans.

The first of our designs coming together-The class were all so engaged in creating their first machines-we had a lot of failures and a few successes. A wonderful learning opportunity.

A great way to measure our success and failures!
Check out my Thinglink! Just scroll over the photo to find some really cool links.
This is a pretty nifty way to share information don't you think?
You can embed anything you want onto a still image-including your writing/websites/youtube etc.

Some of those machines and domino chains are stunning! Enjoy.
We will be making some of these after camp.


  1. I love your Thinglink image and am going to share with my class tomorrow. Is your class planning on designing & building your own Goldberg machine/course? My class I are creating their own thinglink images, what tips or help would you give them? I look forward to seeing what Rube Goldberg inspires you to.
