6A will “meet” for class each day from 9:40 – 10:10 via Google Meets. You’ll receive an invitation via email or you can click on the link in your calendar.  Your attendance is not mandatory, but these “office hours” are when I am available to your class and your class only.

Tuesday – Thursday:

  1. I will be available via Google Meets each day from 9:40 – 10:10.  
  2. Assignment:
    1. Build your own Rube Goldberg machine!  Now that you know about potential and kinetic energy, you are going to use those concepts to create a complicated system to do a very simple task.  If you need to watch more videos to spark your creativity, I’ve linked a couple to Google Classroom.

      3. Video the complex system you created in action!  (Even if it doesn’t work from start to finish, video each part that does work.)
      4. Go into the assignment on Google Classroom, add the video file and turn it in.
