Museum at Prairiefire SciFun Camp: Rube Goldberg Machine

December 31, 2021 @ 8:50 am - 3:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:50 am, repeating until December 31, 2021

Do you like to know how machines work? Even our most intricate modern machines boil down to a handful of basic simple devices, such as the lever and pulley. You encounter these simple machines in your daily lives, such as when you open a car door (lever) to hop in and go for a ride.

On the first day of this multi-day camp for elementary and middle school ages, participants will learn about all of the simple machines and how to construct them. From there, participants will use this knowledge to construct a Rube Goldberg Machine. These contraptions use multiple simple machines chained together to accomplish a task, and participants will work as a team to create a machine to perform a special New Year’s Eve-related task!

The camp runs from 8:50 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily Dec. 27-31.

Register here.
