Rube Goldberg Challenge

 Create a Rube Goldberg machine/invention, device (a deliberately over-engineered or overdone machine) that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction.
1) As a school, you can choose any materials you want to construct your Rube Goldberg machine.
      – Bristol Board
      – Glue/Tape
      – Elastic Bands/String – Ball
      – Wood
      – Dominoes
      – Pulleys
2) The goal is to piece all of the schools’ machines together to create one giant Rube Goldberg Machine.
3) Let’s try to accomplish this goal with a limit of restarting/lifting the ball 10 times.
This is order by which we will be connecting to each other is below.  Teachers, please touch base with:
a. The school before you so you know how to start your machine
b. The school after you so they know how to start their machine
