★ Top Selling Resource ★ Get students operating at a higher level of thinking with this Rube Goldberg Machine Challenge Unit! This product is a 5-Day PBL and STEM Project which allows students to create a Rube Goldberg-type machine using some basic materials provided by the teacher and materials from home.
