We are learning about energy and energy transfer through collisions.   While our classroom did a series of experiments to knock pennies into a bin, we also watched a series of Rube Goldberg Machine videos.

Here are some of the videos:

  1. Honda “The Cog”– on YouTube
    1. A documentary on what it took to create “The Cog”
  2. Sprice Machines- 75 devices (mostly toys) to pull a piece of tape off of a dispenser.
  3. Target “Fresh Machine” TV ad.
  4. 3M’s “Machine” using products that they manufacture.
  5. ESPN “Sports Nation”
