Northport Students Build Rube Goldberg Machines!

Northport Northstar students in Mr. Vlaun’s class engaged in great hands-on learning recently. Students worked together with Mr. Vlaun to build Rube Goldberg machines. Students learned about motion, force and simple machines. Rube Goldberg machines named after cartoonist, Goldberg intentionally are designed to perform simple tasks in an indirect and complicated way. The Rube Goldberg machine usually includes a chain reaction. Awesome learning in Mr. Vlaun’s science class!
