Yesterday, we explored the fun behind chain reactions. We often see this amazing science in the movies e.g. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Wallace and Gromit, to name a couple.
There are many who are so taken by chain reactions that they create interesting ways to perform simple everyday tasks – Rube Goldberg. YouTube is rife with videos of Rube Goldberg approaches to opening a front door, the fridge, or a can of beans. Breakfast preparation also lends itself frequently to this exciting science.
The hour passed by quickly as we flushed a toilet, traveled down drains, turned in gears, and made pigs fly – all with a small metal ball!
