RUBE GOLDBERG (1883-1970) was an inventor, sculptor, author, engineer and cartoonist. Rube is best known for the zany contraptions he drew in a carton with a character called Professor Lucifer Gorgonzola Butts.
These inventions, also known as Rube Goldberg Machines, solved a simple task in the most overcomplicated, inefficient, and hilarious way possible.
A Rube Goldberg machine is any complex contraption that uses a chain reaction to perform a simple task. Combine many simple machines to build one with your family!
Watch this for inspiration:
When you finish your machine, post a video on social media and challenge another family to participate in this fun STEAM exercise. Show us what you create: tag @digibridgeus and use #rgwithdb, or email [email protected].
