Year 8 Science MOTAT Trip

1 2 3 4 5

Year 8 Science classes went to MOTAT in Week 2 to learn about and build a Rube Goldberg machine as part of the Simple Machines Physics topic. Learners were also given a chance to explore the new Simple Machines exhibit, and other MOTAT exhibits before going on a Tram ride.

Later in the term, learners will work in small groups to build their own Rube Goldberg machine, simple machines that work together to complete a simple task in a complicated series of steps. The video shown here shows an example of the single stage Rube Goldberg machines made by each group of learners all joined together to make one long complicated machine.
