Creating Rube Goldberg Machines in Summer Camp
Posted 08/18/2017 09:54AM

Rube Goldberg machines provide complicated solutions to simple problems. They are useful in education because their design and analysis requires critical thinking and innovation. This week, T4T made their semi-annual trip to Turning Point Summer Camp to use discarded materials to create something new. Students in Primary through Grade 5 designed, built, and redesigned their way to some magical creations. Here students made recycling a plastic bottle a lot more complicated, and a lot more fun, then it had to be.
