Energy Project

Good afternoon everyone!
We are starting a big project today and it looks a little like this.

Students will design a Rube Goldberg type device that will use the different types of energy to accomplish a goal. This is Due Friday March 25th. This is worth 60 points and is the biggest thing we have attempted this quarter.

We will start the work on Friday by going over the guidelines and expectations and having students brainstorm types of energy and ways to connect them together. Monday they will have some time to try to develop a draft of their design but the finishing touches will be done at home. The rest of class time will be devoted to viewing professional Rube Goldberg devices and creating a few small scale devices of their own.

If time is a factor on you have any questions, feel free to email me at
