Kids (and adults)!! Want to make your own Rube Goldberg machine?? First, watch the SciShow Kids video “The Coolest Machine Ever!”, then raid your recycling bin and arts and crafts supplies to find materials!
Great picture books to go along with this activity are Izzy Gizmo by Pip Jones, and Andrea Beaty’s books Rosie Revere, Engineer; Iggy Peck, Architect; and Ada Twist, Scientist. For older kids, Beaty has brought Rosie into the chapter book realm with Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters (ebook | audio)
