Making everyday tasks easy with a machine

Duncan Smith —

Year 10 students were asked to to build a Rube Goldberg Machine to perform a simple everyday task.

Machines had to be made entirely with objects found in and around your house. 

  • They couldn't cause damage to the objects used (they must be able to be reused)
  • Be safe for people/animals/property
  • Have at least three ‘sections'

This creation was by designed and built by year 10 student Kip Hailstone.
