Rube Goldberg Projects and video “mash-ups”

Ever do a project with your students and you are blown away with their creativity and uniqueness?  This is how I felt when I received a two-week assigned Rube Goldberg project that my students complete and videotape at their home.  This year seemed particularly smooth.  I think I finally figured out how to present the project effectively (after numerous years) but I also made time to show previous year projects.  I created a video that took each students’ project and morphed it into one video…a “mash-up” if you will.  This way, the current students get a taste of what to expect.  It didn’t bother me that they saw past project ideas because when it came down to it, I just wanted to get the girl’s hands dirty.  I wanted them to explore simple machines at a more intimate level, manipulating and designing.  The results were amazing and I wanted to share my 2014 Rube Goldberg project mash-up’s with you.  Enjoy!

All of my project and science content videos are created using the video editing software, Camtasia designed by Techsmith.
