Domino Chain Raction Phase II

Phase II
Using the Chain Reaction Energy to Build a Rube Goldberg
Machine
October 17, 2018
Review
● You had the chance to learn about how the speed of the dominos chain
reaction is related to the spacing between the dominos.
● You had the chance to experiment with the dominos and use the chain
reaction to move one or two objects.
Phase II: Are you ready to know
your next assignment????????
Dear STEAM Students,
Before you are assigned your next task, today I would like you to do some
research on the topic. You have to answer the following questions in a Google
slide form (Shared with your group members). Please don’t share the slides with
me (Yet!!!!). This task will start today but you will be working on it until your Phase
II is completed within the next two week. For today there is no need to use the
dominos. You just need your device to be able to work.
Let us start the journey.
Slide One:
● Create a Google Slide
● Cover Page Title:
Phase II
Using the Chain Reaction Energy to Build a Rube Goldberg
Machine
● Student Names: Include all names of the group members
● Include a photo that has dominos (don’t forget to put the URL under the
picture)
Slide 2 + 3: Research about Rube Goldberg
●
●
●
Who was Rube Goldberg and what did he
do? What was he famous for?
How does a Rube Goldberg machine
work?
What is the Rube Goldberg challenge
❖ Information should be rephrased in
students own word.
❖ At least one picture related to the topic is
used per slide
❖ Information should be presented in bullet
format but with complete sentences.
URL used to find information and Pictures
Stop!!!!
After completing slides 1,2, and 3
● You need to stop and watch this video with your group members. It will help
you understand what will be expected of you for the next couple of weeks.

The Rube Goldberg Machine a Simple Reality
Enjoy watching these clips from movies and cartoons to demonstrate the Rube
Goldberg machine.

Remember: We will not make anything burn or explode. But there are many
ways to enjoy building a Rube Goldberg machine and stay safe.
I hope you have completed your work for today. I will see you next week. Have a
great weekend.
Research Simple Machines!!!!!
Slide 4: Show your understanding of Simple Machines
a. Search each of these machines, give a brief description about the simple machine, and put a
picture of each.
i. There are 6 basic simple machines: Lever, the Wheel and Axle, the Inclined PlaneRamp, the Wedge, the Pulley, and the Screw.
ii. Include a URL for the information and pictures
Planning Phase
Slide 5
●
●
●
Draw your Plan (Blue-Print of your idea)
○ You will include a picture of your blue-print plan and all the editing that you are creating for your machine
Create a slide for material needed
○ Don’t purchase or bring any materials until your group have obtained teacher’s approval
Conditions:
○ You have to utilize the power of chain reaction of the dominos in your machine
○ You have to include at least 3 of the simple machines in your design
○ Your machine has to do “Work” to be used in a useful simple task.
Remember this is only planning phase, don’t get stressed or overwhelmed. Be realistic but creative. Plan to use materials
found at home. The end product is to use the power of your machine to do a simple but useful task.
Building Phase
Reminder: Conditions:
○ You have to utilize the power of chain reaction of the dominos in your
machine
■ Make sure that the dominos chain reaction used for kinetic energy.
○ You have to include at least 3 of the simple machines in your design.
■ You have to explain the 3 simple machines used and the purpose of
using them.
○ Your machine has to do “Work” to be used in a useful simple task.
■ What is the simple task is being done by your model.
Video and Reflection
Slide 6
Video has to show your trials and errors
Video has to show that you have succeeded at the end
Slide 7
Reflection:
You may use video interview, or write your reflection and included in the slides.
