STEAM Machine

Zone A: Polytechnic campus

Students will work individually or as teams to build a machine based on Rube Goldberg chain reaction. The STEAM Machine is built all out of duct tape, PVC, mouse traps, wood, dominos etc. Prizes awarded for completion of the task. The engineering design process allows students to interconnect science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) concepts to transform simple ideas and materials into complex multi-disciplinary systems. These machines create a unique opportunity for developing hands-on learning activities that promotes an understanding of teamwork and the engineering design process.
