3rd & 4th Grade - A Whistling Good Idea
Try your hand at building your own Rube Goldberg machine to drop a teaspoon. Here’s how.
You will need:
1 thin book rolled up as a cylinder, 2 smooth long sticks for a slope, 2 thick books, 2 rulers, 1 marker, 1 eraser, 1 ball,
3 notebooks, 1 light plastic jar, a bundle of string, 1 teaspoon, 1 vessel, 1 smooth beam
Slide the cylinder down a slope.
The cylinder hits two books, placed standing up. They fall on a ruler, which is balanced on a marker. This, in turn, tips a ball.
The ball hits three notebooks.
They land on the edge of the second ruler, balanced on an eraser.
A jar, placed on the other end of the ruler, is attached to a piece of string.
The string is looped around a smooth beam above.
The free end of the string is tied to a spoon.
The jar rises when the third notebook falls on the ruler.
The string falls down, dropping the spoon into the vessel.
