What we're studying:
We are a Technology-Rich Technology School from West Haven Utah. We love all things STEM and are proud to be a part of the Rube Goldberg Club at our school. Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
Doubt Kills more Dreams than Failure ever willWhy we think we should win:
We have worked since November 2017 on our machine and have spent countless hours as a team, perfecting and improving our machine. This will be our first time competing at the National Competition and we are excited to showcase our project.
Our theme is space, and it is set in the bedroom of a boy named Albert. Albert loves astronomy and engineering, so he self-decorated his room to match his hobbies. Albert also made a machine that hangs in his room which pours a bowl of cereal in the morning for his breakfast. Albert's gizmos and gadgets will soon serve him the best breakfast in the universe!
Our Step List
1. We flip a switch causing a transfer of energy from us to the switch.
2. The switch winds up a pulley, pushing the rocket to hit the ball.
3. The ball rolls down the ramp, and falls into the tunnel.
4.The ball hits the winding ramp, and hits the RC car switch
5. The car drives up the ramp and hits a switch on the wall.
6. The switch activates the motor, which winds up a string pouring the bowl of cereal.
7. As the motor winds, it hits the lever, pushing the planets into motion.
8. The planets cause the round weight to drop
9. The round weight falling causes the scissors to close on the rope
10. The rope cut causes the large weight to fall on the bucket
11. The tipped bucket causes the plank to tilt upwards and causes the kid to jump out of bed
