Year 4 Phillips - During Term 4 Year 4
Phillips are taking on the Year of Physics Online Challenge. The challenge
is to design, create and evaluate a Goldberg Machine.
What is a Goldberg Machine? Have you ever played the Mouse Trap game?
Ever seen Wallace and Grommit - The Wrong Trousers? What about the
Honda ad where various bits and pieces of car create a domino effect? Well
these are all examples of Goldberg Machines.
Goldberg Machines use a string of
outlandish tools, items, objects and steps to accomplish everyday tasks in
the most complicate way.
