written by
Brittney VornDick

This is an activity for students to design and analyze a Rube-Goldberg Machine. The goal is for the students to calculate the time it takes to complete the motion of the machine. Different physical systems must be included, such as inclined planes, rotational motion, and oscillations. Detailed rubrics are included for the activity.
