My Project With
WYATT MARTIN AND MATT GILL
MY RUBE GOLDBERG MACHINE
The project I chose was the Rube Goldberg Machine.
I chose this project because I had fun the first time.
I looked up some awesome Rube Goldberg Machines. We thought we would do something like what they did.
FURTHER INTRODUCTION RESEARCH
I drew a picture. Watched videos to find out what I'm going to do. We know what and where we are building it.
We needed to find out what we needed to make. We also needed to find out what we needed to use. I think this will take us a while. I also think we have everything we need.
BUILDING THE PROJECT
We still need to bring stuff in. We still need to catch up Wyatt Martin. It is hard building. It will take a while.
WHAT I'M FINDING OUT WHILE DOING MY PROJECT
I am learning that it is harder than it looks. It's is going to take a while. It is still very fun but challenging. This will indeed take us the rest of school.
NEW QUESTION AND INFORMATION
We aren't sure how we are going to make it work how we want it to. It will be pretty hard to finish. I don't know if we will do it how we planned to. I'm not sure how long it will take.
TECHNICAL PARTS OF MY PROJECT
It stops before the end. We need to make it shorter. It's too long so it stops way earlier and doesn't have enough speed. We need a steeper hill for the pully.
TECH STUFF [PART #2]
It's hard to get it to keep going. We can't get it to continue to the end. We need to make the parts shorter so it doesn't still happen.
We are going to add another group with us to make it longer. It is going to be a little hard. We are doing good so far.
DID IT WORK?
It works. It works because it works step by step on how we want it to work. It goes from step 1 to 4 without stopping. I'm hoping it will work the rest of the year. It also took us a little while to get it to work every time. We added another group to ours and it still works. Now we need to keep it working.
We got both groups to work together. It took a couple tweaks to get it to work. It got through all the stages fluently.
How we got it to work
We made all the stages and little shorter but added more with the other groups. We had to use and bring in more stuff. It went along fluently.
We need to finish with it working. The other group was taking a while to set up. Rube Goldberg Machine is so close to done.
We finished and have nothing else to do. We got a good grade. We had to Rube Goldberg Machines together with another group.
I am happy that I did this. I would not like to do this when I grow up but it was very fun. I would never do any other project. Doing this was very fun and I would like to do it again another year. The thing I liked most about it was that we got to be creative. The thing I didn't like about it was that we had many problems. We at least got it done and that's all I asked for.
