To dispense an appropriate amount of hand sanitizer into one's hand.
Task: To dispense an appropriate amount of hand sanitizer into one's hand.Theme: Rube's Workshop Step Count: 176 Result: Won 1st place at the Regional Competition. Won the People’s Choice at the Regional Competition. Did not Place at the National Competition. Discussion: Due to error, the box truck to transport the machine was 1/16” to short to fit the machine and was forced onto a pickup truck. The machine was severely rattled and was unable to function at Nationals (we even had our cannon miss it’s catcher and destroy another step!!!) The machine, and parts of the 2011 machine will be featured in May on an episode of Modern Marvels!!! Check out the footage when posted!
This is a close up of each of the modules on the machine. It follows the routine of Rube Goldberg's day. Everything from shaving to conducting his experiments.Link
We built a conduit pipe track for an 8lb shot put to run along. It ran around the whole machine, shot out of an air cannon 5 feet into the air, and then went through a loop-a-loop.
To add a little something special to the machine, we made a Tesla coil based off of instructions we found online. It arched a bolt of lightning 6 inches between the to towers.Elevate my awareness
