Rube Goldberg Machines
Afternoon 1 pm - 4pm
A Rube Goldberg machine, contraption, invention, device or apparatus is a deliberately over-engineered or overdone machine that performs a very simple task in a very complicated fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg (1883-1970). (Wikipedia)
Campers will build their own Rube Goldberg machine using Lego™ bricks, NXT motors and sensors. They will learn about the 6 simple machines (lever, wheel & axle inclined plane, wedge, screw and pulley) and how to incorporate these into their multi-step machine!
Camp runs Monday - Wednesday from 1pm- 4pm
Campers bring a snack and water bottle.
