This is by far my most favorite STEM unit to teach! This also works great for distant learning and I have been over the moon with the results (examples included in the product). And if you don’t know what a Rube Goldberg Machine is, no need to worry, I created a scripted, detailed unit for teachers.
Combine NGSS engineering design, motion/stability and forces and interactions standards into one unit by teaching Rube Goldberg Machines! In this unit students will create their own Rube Goldberg Machine after learning about chain reactions, simple machines, forces and interactions and motion and stability.
