Rube Goldberg was a Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, sculptor, and author. Best known for his “inventions”, Rube’s early years as an engineer informed his most acclaimed work. A Rube Goldberg contraption – an elaborate set of arms, wheels, gears, handles, cups, and rods, put in motion by balls, canary cages, pails, boots, bathtubs, paddles, and live animals. Mr. Colizzi’s Honors Physics class had the mission of constructing their own timely Rube Goldberg machines.
