What's Included

We’ve all seen them, but not everyone knows them by name. Rube Goldberg machines are contraptions made of household items, junk and just about anything that can be connected together in a convoluted arrangement that can be set off to produce a chain reaction of motion that typically ends in some sort of grand finale. In this introductory class, young students learn how to engineer table top sized Rube Gold-bergs from all sorts of items found in the extensive collection of vintage parts at Newton’s Attic. So crank up your creativity, imagination, sense of humor, and get ready to learn about tool use, basic engineering and outside the box thinking in this entertaining and educational experience.
