Rube Goldberg was a cartoonist that received a Pulitzer Prize for his political cartooning.  He was also known for making simple activities complex and convoluted.  They are fun to watch unfold.  Anyone who has played “Mousetrap” will agree that have the fun is putting the game together to catch the mouse.

Wallace and Grombit do a great job of taking ordinary things and mechanizing it.

When you assign this project, be sure your students or children understand what is the goal.
