Rube Goldberg A PBL Project


The Rube Goldberg project was a PBL Integration project. The objective was to design, build, and test a Rube Goldberg Machine that creates sounds in each step. It also must be made entirely out of recycled materials. In groups of four or five, each memeber was responsible for one part/stage of the machine.


Fit in a 2 ft x 2 ft x 2 ft space, must use recycled materials, minimum of 5 steps, no more than two (2) minutes per run, no live animals, must not imply profane expressions, loose or flying objects must remain within the set boundaries, o flames may be used, no hazardous materials or explosives can be used, electrical components can be used

My Part

My part was basically two boxes taped onto one another, and in the top box was a concealed chute that would take the marble to the front opening. Out of the front opening there were pennies that made noise.
