My Project With
WYATT MARTIN AND MATT GILL

MY RUBE GOLDBERG MACHINE
[Entry 1]

The project I chose was the Rube Goldberg Machine.

I chose this project because I had fun the first time.

INTRO RESEARCH
[PLANNING]
[entry 2]

I looked up some awesome Rube Goldberg Machines. We thought we would do something like what they did.

FURTHER INTRODUCTION RESEARCH
[entry 3]

I drew a picture. Watched videos to find out what I'm going to do. We know what and where we are building it.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED
[entry 4]

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
[entry 5]

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
[entry 6-7]

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
[entry 8]

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
[entry 9]

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]
[entry 10]

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.

Next Step
[entry 11]

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?
[entry 12-13]

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.

It worked
[entry 14]

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
[entry 15]

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.

Next Step
[entry 16]

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.

Next Step
[entry 17]

We finished and have nothing else to do. We got a good grade. We had to Rube Goldberg Machines together with another group.

Reflections
[entry 18-19]

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.
