Students create Rube Goldberg machines
(Left) Mrs. Sutterfield's science lab classes at Roland Public Schools have been hard at work creating their very own Rube Goldberg machines. A Rube Goldberg machine is a chain reaction-type machine or contraption intentionally designed to perform a simple task in an indirect and overly complicated way. Usually, these machines consist of a series of simple unrelated devices; the action of each previous action triggers the initiation of the next, eventually resulting in achieving a stated goal. The school said they have enjoyed seeing students use their imagination and innovation throughout this project and school year.
