Rube Goldberg Project

Chain Reaction Machine


The Problem

Some people don’t believe in working together or sharing ideas.

The Mission

Your mission is to build a Rube Goldberg chain reaction machine that demonstrates teamwork. You must work on a team of two. Each team must build a component of the chain reaction, passing a ball from one component to another. At the end of the chain reaction, the machine must display a joke or throw candy or make music or squirt water.


Teamwork is Crucial!

Plan and design.

Build modules.

Document results.

Connect each team’s component.

Test the chain.

Take pictures for the website.

Present project to the world.

There’s a lot to do! If we don’t work together,

then neither will our machines work together!

Rube Goldberg Machines from Japan #1 (9:30 min)

Honda Ad

There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in the film. Everything you see really happened in real time exactly as you see it.

The film took 606 takes. On the first 605 takes, something, usually very minor, didn't work. They would then have to set the whole thing up again.

The crew spent weeks shooting night and day. The film cost six million dollars and took three months to complete including a full engineering of the sequence.


You Get Points For:

Most number of modules used in your component

Best looking as voted by your peers

Teamwork! Working together and exchanging ideas



Modular construction is BIG!

Break your solution into simple motion and structural modules.

You may find instructions for useful modules in Build-It-Blocks.


Look Good



Decorate our modules!

-make cool characters

-draw signs the way

-use many and shapes

-be neat and organized

A good idea that looks ugly …

may not get the attention it deserves!
