Rube Goldberg is a great station to express your creativity and use problem solving skills. While at this station you will run into many problems that require hard work and good planning. I learned that you need to use short and reliable steps that frequently work. Also, short steps work better because it makes it so that you have less to clean up at the end of class. At this station you need to use your time wisely and plan very well because you only have a limited amount of time. If you work with a partner at this station choose wisely because if you don’t work well with them you will not get anything done and you will argue about what projects you do and how you do them. Rube Goldberg is a station you won’t regret participating in.

Rube Goldberg has by far been my favorite experience in tech lab. It let you create things that you could only imagine about before. It has a unique aspect of working with a partner which teaches you different skills than other stations such as teamwork, communication and problem solving. This station has been a great experience and has helped me to think outside the box ( such as you could see a screw driver as a screw driver but i see it as something different) this is the mind set you need in order to be sucessful at this station.
Tips
1.) Dominoes are useful but in small quantities
2.) Your machine usually wont work the first time
3.) Be daring and creative
4.) Have fun
