Rube Goldberg Machines in Mr. Churchill’s Physics 11

Thank you to Mr. Churchill and his NPSS Physics 11 class for sharing their Rube Goldberg projects this year! The following description of the project, its curricular goals, and video is from Mr. Churchill.

This is a video compilation of this year’s Physics 11 students, Rube Goldberg projects. The students need to build a Rube Goldberg machine that demonstrates some of the major concepts from Physics 11 (momentum, acceleration, velocity, energy, Net force and projectiles). The students have to have a project with a minimum amount of energy transfers from one object to another and this years challenge was to launch a ball over a wall 10x the diameter of the ball and hit a 5cm tall pin no wider than the ball itself. The students also had to complete calculations based on their project that show an understanding of those major concepts. The students have 3 tries for their project to work completely.

Let’s Talk Science at Bert Bowes

CJDC TV covered the latest Let’s Talk Science activity at Bert Bowes last week which gave students and community members an opportunity to connect and explore careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Let’s Talk Science activities also provide students an engaging challenge to solve in a team.

Thank you to the community volunteers that shared their time and expertise with our students!
