Summer STEAM Workshop -- Chain Reactions

Wednesday, June 152:00—3:30 PMMeeting RoomActon Memorial Library486 Main Street, Acton, MA, 01720

A different STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) workshop every week during the summer. Ages 7+

This week, we will be using dominoes, golf balls, Legos, and anything else we can find to set up a chain reaction, or "Rube Goldberg machine." From Wikipedia:

A Rube Goldberg machine, named after American cartoonist Rube Goldberg, is a chain reaction-type machine or contraption intentionally designed to perform a simple task in an indirect and (impractically) overly complicated way. Usually, these machines consist of a series of simple unrelated devices; the action of each triggers the initiation of the next, eventually resulting in achieving a stated goal.
