Plan and build a Rube goldberg Machine
I hope all of you are enjoying your holiday break! Above you will find a MS Word planning guide that you can use and modify as you plan and build your Rube Goldberg Machines. I have also included a description of the project and rubric if you do not have your science notebooks close at hand. In the next few weeks I will create a place for you to upload your Rube Goldberg videos (These will not be due for quite awhile but an upload will be available soon).
