SciFun Camp - Rube Goldberg Machine | Kids Out and About Kansas City

SciFun Camp - Rube Goldberg Machine


*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 12/31/2021
On the first day of this multi-day camp, we will learn about all of the simple machines and how to construct them. From then on, you will use this knowledge to construct a Rube Goldberg Machine. These contraptions use multiple simple machines chained together to accomplish a task, and you will work as a team to create a machine to perform a special New Year’s Eve-related task!

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

Do you like to know how machines work? Even our most intricate modern machines boil down to a handful of basic simple devices, such as the lever and pulley. You encounter these simple machines in your daily lives, such as when you open a car door (lever) to hop in and go for a ride.
