This information packet contains instructions, student work/note pages, and a grading rubric. Students will create a Rube Goldberg-inspired machine that performs the simple task of placing a marble in a cup. The rubric explains the project requirements and guidelines, such as having 5-10 steps in each machine. Students will work in groups to construct their machines from found, recyclable objects. This works great as an end of the year engineering project, or as a PBL-type project for simple machines.
