In this challenge, students are asked to construct simple machines from every day objects. The task is to create a sequence of events that transfer motion between inanimate objects, much like a Rube Goldberg machine.
What You Should Know
You can use just about anything to construct the mechanisms of the challenge. Look No Hands was designed to be adaptable to a wide range of settings, so encourage your students to be creative if they don't have access to the objects mentioned in the Stuff You'll Need section of the level pages.
While the first 3 levels may seem elementary, they lay the foundation for a very wide open level four and beyond. The idea of chaining together a series of reactions can be expanded to fill an entire room, and serves as a great platform for hands on collaboration. This challenge is well suited for individualized expansion beyond the FUSE challenges in the form of a My Ideas project.
