Kaleb and Liam’s Rube Goldberg Project

Blue prints/brainstorm of our project

A: The phone vibrates down the ramp hitting a marble that s on a stop that turns potential energy into kenetic a energy as it goes down a ramp hitting a lever.

B: A marble hits the bottom the lever witch hits the car above.

C: The car travels down a ramp over the chair falling in a basket.

D: The car fals in the basket lifting a lever that is blocking a large marble.

E: The marble is re-elected and rolls down a woden path.

F: The marble falls on the mouse trap witch lets the flag go.

G: The weights on the other side of the tower drag the flag up.(raising the flag)

ENERGY TRANSFERS

1 section A when potential energy turns into kenetick energy with the marble.

2 section C-D when kenetic energy turns into more kenetic energy with the lever

3 section f the mouse trap uses elastic energy and is set off using kenetic energy

Making babies 101

Remain and I created a Baby in our science class. The way we did this so by flipping a coin to decide who had the dominant trait and other factors to decide traits of the baby. Our baby has blue eyes and wavy hair he also has pointy nostrils. In a way this is similar to real life because we get traits from both of our parents but in real life the way we are maid is much more complicated than a coin flip. At points during this experience I realized that I prefer certain traits such as detached eyebrows rather than a unibrow. I think my preferences come from my life and what we are thought is “attractive” and “normal” even though it is all normal.
