Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Our team name is Buzz's Breakfast and we have created a machine based off of Toy Story. Our team has eight members. We were chosen because we are responsible and have interesting imaginations. Our goal is to present a fun project and have a better understanding of what a Rube Goldberg machine is and does. Our machine has 32 steps and runs in under a minute. Our theme is Toy Story , so we used a large amount of toys. We decorated our machine with pictures and action figures from the movie. Our machine starts in a bedroom and moves to the kitchen. We move back into the bedroom to pour the cereal.
