Engineering Class takes on a Rube Goldberg project

Rube Goldberg Project
Posted on 12/02/2020
Rube Goldberg machine, named after American cartoonist Rube Goldberg, is a machine intentionally designed to perform a simple task in an indirect and overly complicated way. Usually, these machines consist of a series of simple unrelated devices; the action of each triggers the initiation of the next, eventually resulting in achieving a stated goal.*

Mrs. Lowe's Engineering Drawing students took on such a project this week.  The video below is of Matthew Duley's project, which put a smile on Mrs. Lowe's face and an A in the gradebook for Matthew.  The video is used with permission from Matthew's parents.
