Rube Goldberg Machines Activate Across the Bay Area

IL2 and IL3 students recently completed a Rube Goldberg Machine as part of project-based learning. A Rube Goldberg Machine is an unnecessarily complex series of events that completes a simple task. Students were challenged to create a Rube Goldberg machine that could connect to a classmate's machine, making a super long virtual chain that extends across KLS student homes in the Bay Area. The end of each Rube Goldberg machine hits a key on the student's laptop to call the next person in line to activate the next sequence. The project culminated in a digital Exhibition via live streams broadcasted by students and families, keeping the community connected during remote learning. Watch the Exhibition video above to see how they did!
