Technology Club Explores Rube Goldberg Scientific Contraptions
Members of the S.T.E.A.M. Technology Club were introduced to the concept of Rube Goldberg contraptions through an iPad app called Rube Works. Students used critical thinking and problem solving skills to create a complicated contraption used to complete a very simple task. After students interacted with the app they viewed examples of kid created contraptions such as Audri’s Rube Goldberg Monster Trapping Machine. The students collaborated to build their own simple Rube Goldberg Machines to complete common classroom activities.
