A Seven Year Old Designs A Rube Goldberg Monster Trap!

See on Scoop.itShare Some Love Today

Check out this post (and the embedded YouTube video) where a 7 year old (who wants” to study robotics at MIT and become a theoretical theorist”) designs a Rube Goldberg machine to trap a monster. His description of a Rube Goldberg machine is “a machine that creates a complicated chain reaction to do a simple task.” Using a wide variety of materials, including marbles, tubing, pencils, a toaster, books, balls, a paper roll and more he shows us his creativity and ingenuity…as well as resilience. He also shows an understanding of the scientific method, sharing his hypothesis and more. I suspec that many will share this video with others in their schools.
