WINNING ENGINEERS- The top scoring team was comprised of Brittany Gay, Charlotte Lewis and Rusty Street whose project used all machines and did all the jobs required by Mrs. Miller. Energetic Thinking Rube Goldberg Challenge Produces Fun Every spring Flint River Academy science teacher Mandy Miller has her freshmen students complete Rube Goldberg projects which use the ideas of Pulitzer Prize-win- ning artist Rube Goldberg's "Invention" cartoons. The project is designed to encourage the imagina- tion and use problem-solv- ing methods to do some- thing as simple as peel an apple, sharpen a pencil, or put toothpaste on a tooth- brush. Instead of just "solving" the problem, students have to make the solution as complicated as possible. All six simple machines are required: the screw, lever, wedge, inclined plane, pulley, and wheel and axle. Mrs. Miller requires at least three jobs completed: launch a ball, raise a flag, pour water in a cup, put toothpaste on a brush, hammer a nail, pop a bal- loon, blow out a candle, or tie a knot. Six forms of energy exchange must occur.
