Physics Students Construct Rube Goldberg Machines

Mr. Kublbeck’s Physics classes are constructing and testing Rube Goldberg machines made from recycled materials. Named for the American cartoonist and inventor, Rube Goldberg machines are deliberately over-engineered devices that perform a simple task in a complicated fashion. Next week, Mr. K’s students will create videos that show the machines in working order and explain the physics principles they applied.
