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.
