Engineering STEAM Maker Project

Today's maker project objectives are related to Rube Goldberg Machines, like in this music video

Recently I participated in a cool STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) PD session and we created our own Rube Goldberg machines using everyday objects (and things like hot wheels tracks).

Here are the objectives from that PD session, which I will use here as well:

Rube Goldberg machine is a contraption, invention, device or apparatus that is deliberately over-engineered to perform a simple task in a complicated fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg (1883–1970). (from wikipedia)
