If you have any of the following items for your child’s class to use please send them to school as soon as possible:

Possible materials and items include:
aluminium foil, cardboard, water bottles, toilet paper or paper towel tubes, cereal boxes, cans, dominoes, funnels, marbles, golf balls, string, buckets, cups or bowls, and magnets etc!

Thank you for your support – there will be a small prize for any children who give this activity a go at home first!

Rube Goldberg
What is the Rube Goldberg theory?
“A Rube Goldberg machine uses a set of reactions that work in succession, triggering one event after another until the final event is triggered. Often, each reaction is a simple task that will trigger the next, for example, a row of dominos, a well-calculated swinging object, or a ball rolling down a ramp.”
