Science Week – Human Rube Goldberg machine

Year 4 had a lot of fun on Thursday making a human Rube Goldberg machine, inspired by the US band OK Go’s music video for their song, This Too Shall Pass, which you can watch here

We worked as a class at first then split into groups to plan and engineer our own machines. The children were so creative and did a huge amount of testing and refining before trying out their machine with varying levels of success!

However well the machines did or didn’t work, the levels of teamwork, cooperation, resilience and ingenuity were outstanding. A fantastically fun and inventive afternoon, Year 4 – you were brilliant!
