Chain Reaction II
Participants will use an assortment of items (mainly household items) to complete Rube Goldberg-type challenges.
Encourage guest to build a device that will complete a task through the use of chain reactions. Using basic physics concepts (inertia, gravity, force, motion) and common items, guests will build Rube Goldberg-type machines.
Force and Motion
Paper towel/toilet paper tubes
Toy building blocks
Ping pong balls (to serve as object to be moved by machine)
