Axis STEM 11/12 Honors Summer Assignment
The Rube Goldberg Art Machine
Safely build, invent, and engineer a Rube Goldberg machine that uses a chain reaction of moving parts to create some form of art as the end product.
A Rube Goldberg machine is a deliberately over-engineered machine that performs a simple task in a very complicated chain reaction of different mechanisms. For the purposes of this project, your Art Machine must integrate at least five different mechanisms in its chain reaction of events. The overall task of your machine is to create some form of art. The art can be produced by one mechanism of the machine or any number of the parts can contribute to the final product.
