    Out of the 3 times I ran my machine, none of them worked. I had to troubleshoot for 3 days to try to fix my machine but I was unsuccessful. I am proud of what I have though. The fatal flaw in mine was trying to get the dominoes to hit the ball to keep the momentum going. If i had more time I would have made all of the steps perfect. Also, I would have made my construction more sturdy.

    Introduction: For my first project in my Advanced Science class, I was instructed to design, model, and eventually build my own personal Rube Goldberg Machine that weighed something by the end. It had to be at least 10 seconds long and contain 8 steps. It needed to fit within a space of 80 cm x 80 cm x 80 cm.

    Topic
    Our task was to create a Rube Goldberg Machine. It had to be at least 10 seconds, have 8 step, and to weigh an object. It had to be able to fit through the door as well. If you did not meet this standards you would lose points.
    Process
    The first thing I had to do was research. I looked at cartoons and videos I found online to help me build my project. I learned that Rube Goldberg machines are complicated machines that do a simple task. After my research I had to do a rough draft. I sketched out a total of 8 transfers of energy. Once I got the rough draft down I started constructing. I used old wood and random objects to build my machine. I spent 5 dollars on my project in all. After I was done constructing my project had 8 steps, was 5 seconds long, and fit through the door.

    History:
    Rube Goldberg would design cartoons that made crazy contraptions to complete simple tasks. Rube Goldberg was born in 1883. He died in 1970. He wrote cartoons for a newspaper and that's how he got his start.
    Steps
    Push car forward
    Car hits ball
    Ball rolls down ramp through cup to hit a rod
    Rod turns to hit second golf ball
    Second golf ball hits dominoes
    Domino hits 3rd golf ball
    3rd golf ball hits 4th golf ball
    4th golf ball rolls down ramp
    4th golf ball hits a marble
    Marble rolls through pipe onto a ramp
    Hits a 5th golf ball onto a scale
    Results
    Out of the 3 times I ran my machine, none of them worked. I had to troubleshoot for 3 days to try to fix my machine but I was unsuccessful. I am proud of what I have though. The fatal flaw in mine was trying to get the dominoes to hit the ball to keep the momentum going. If i had more time I would have made all of the steps perfect.
