Sam’s Reflection: This project was very fun and it tested our problem solving skills. I learned how to change my ideas as I went and some science along the way. The funnest part was making the machines. My favorite one was when it went in the cup and it pulled out the tissue. The difficult part was changing plans along the way to fit our machine, and figuring out what is best. Next time I would take more time designing the machines before we start to build them, so that we make sure their are less flaws. That is also the advice I would give others too. I would tell them to plan before to build.
Charlie's reflection: This project was very fun. My favorite thing this round was that it was very active. I got to excitement and fail then make it better and succeed. If I did this project again, I would try to make longer rube Goldbergs and a little more complicated because our rube goldbergs were short. This was very hard because we failed a lot and had to keep making it better until we finally succeeded. It was also hard to come up with ideas that didn't overlap with our other rube goldbergs. I learned how to change the ideas without ruining the rube goldberg. Also, I learned that it is good to plan the whole rube goldberg out before we start building the whole contraption. If someone else did rube goldbergs for a project, I would say that they should plan out before hand because there will be less mistakes and more fun!
