How to Create a Rube Goldberg Machine

Rube Goldberg machines use a series of cause and effect actions to complete a simple task. The machines involve pushes, pulls, and transferring of energy. Can you build your own Rube Goldberg machine? Watch the video using the link below. Use common household items to create at least 10 cause and effect reactions. Record your machine and post it on Seesaw. If 10 cause and effects were easy, try for more. If 10 seems too hard, try to do 5 and work on adding more. Remember what Joseph said about trial and error. You are going to need to persevere. Things won't always work the way you want them to the first time you try it. Get your family and even your pets involved. Be safe!
