Subject: Science (9 - 12)
Title: Rube Goldberg Machines & Energy
Description: Students will create a Rube Goldberg Machine while working in a small group through this lesson.  They will then explain the energy transformations present in their own machine and in those of their classmates.  This will ensure their understanding of the law of conservation of energy as well as energy transformations.   This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.
