2nd & 3rd Grade
Rube Goldberg Machines!
Rube Goldberg designed machines that made simple tasks much more complicated! These machines use contraptions, inventions, or devices to make chain reactions that accomplish the simple tasks! In 2nd and 3rd grade Technology Club, we watched the Rube Goldberg machine video below, featuring the band "Ok Go" to see one of these machines in action!

Afterwards, we solved a Rube Goldberg machine of our own by figuring out how we could get all of the parts of the machine to fit in the right spots! Have fun!

When you put those pictures together, one after another, it looks like the object is moving on its own! We will be using KidPix to create Stop-Motion Animations in Technology Club. Below are some videos and tools to make your own Stop-Motion Animations at home! Be creative and have fun!
