Rube Goldberg's self operating napkin
Ridiculously Convoluted Contraptions at Kids Talk Science!
Why would you make something simple when you can make it really complicated? Because you want to have fun!
This summer we'll be building Rube Goldberg machines, absurd gadgets that perform simple tasks in convoluted ways. After exploring the physics of simple machines and the principles of energy transfer, the kids will launch their engineering project. Using common objects, they will design, build and test their machines before presenting them to their parents.
