Moon Area Middle School Students Create Rube Goldberg Inventions for Class
Moon Area Middle School eighth-graders created their own Rube Goldberg inventions made out of all recycled materials for their Reading and Writing Reinforcement classes. The students worked in small groups in order to collectively create a machine made from plastic containers, paper towel rolls, cans, and bottles. The machines were created to perform various tasks such as breaking an egg, pouring soda into a cup, spraying perfume, and trapping items under a recycled container.
Rube Goldberg machines are deliberately over-designed to perform simple tasks and often include a chain reaction. Lisa Tolliver, who teaches seventh and eighth grade Reading and Writing Reinforcement at MAMS, decided to incorporate the Rube Goldberg inventions into her curriculum to support what students learned in their eighth grade physical science classes.
