Physics 12 Mr. Cooper March 3, 2014
The Project: • A Rube Goldberg machine is your final project for physics 12. • It’s due date for this class is April 28th, 2014. • This project will have a value of 10% towards your final grade.
Rube Goldberg Examples: • Here are a few professionally designed RGB projects. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qybUFnY7Y8w (This too shall pass) • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrCb_fNmSTA (Crème that egg) • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWk9N92-wvg (Honda Commercial)
Real life RGB: • 45 seconds of constant motion • No cuts to video. • No “time wasters”… • Must have at least 6 different changes. The more the better. • Examples are:1st class levers, 2nd class levers, 3rd class levers, inclined plane, pulley, mechanical wave, sound, light source, elastic collision with transfer of momentum, machine • You’ll know what I mean.
Digital World RGB: • You can use any program to create a digital world ranging from “Phun”, “Algodoo”, Halo, Little Big planet, Linerider, Portal, etc…. • Constant motion must continue for 2 minutes if you choose the digital format. • No cuts to video. • No “time wasters”… • Must be creative

RGB - Project • More details: Planning time • Three classes of planning will be given. • Today is one of them. • http://gwynridenhour.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/sum-up-how-to-do-a-rube-goldberg-project-and-not-lose-your-mind/ Site to help you out.
Suggested schedule: • By mid-March have all of the machines and layout planned • By late-March test these different machines individually to make sure they function like you expect. • By early April have a weekend in mind to put everything together. • By mid April have the video and project complete
