"Create a Rube Goldberg Machine in Fortnite Creative"
Lesson plan example for students ages 13+
Who doesn’t love a good Rube Goldberg Machine? Full of humor, wit, and based on simple machines, Rube Goldberg inventions are described as overly complex machines comprised of a number of automated actions to solve a simple problem. We can only imagine how thrilled Rube would have been if Fortnite Creative mode was available in his day. In this lesson, students will learn about simple machines, engineering, and automation as they design and build a Rube Goldberg Machine.
