Rube Goldberg Project

    The purpose of this project was to build a device to perform a simple task (in our case, put toothpaste on a toothbrush).  The catch is that we had to make the "device" as inefficient as possible.  We had to have at least 20 steps before the final task was completed.  Rolling balls, mouse traps, see-saws, etc. were used in our project.  Below are some AutoCAD drawings of our final project.

This is what our project looked like when finished.
