Rube Goldberg Machines

Do you remember playing Mousetrap as a child? I loved the idea of setting up the trap and watching it fall into place....

Can you even find them anymore? 
Little did I know that I was building my own "Rube Goldberg" Machine. With the onset of YouTube in the classroom, I have fallen in love with sharing these machines with my students.

My classroom full of future engineers and kinesthetic learners have fallen in love with them too.  Here's a great Mythbusters video for the holidays (wish I had seen it last month!)
Stay tuned for how my kids made their own versions in science class!
