Activity - Rube Goldberg Machine

I LOVE Rube Goldberg Machines (almost as much as I love falling dominoes). This one is part technology, part advertisement for STEM, part social message.

Here's the article:

And here's the video:

Can you describe what happens in the video?
What's the coolest trick in this video?
What does STEM stand for?
Why is it important that women learn about STEM?
What is the social message at the end of the video?
Have you ever made a Rube Goldberg Machine?
Do you know a video of a Rube Goldberg Machine or falling dominoes that everyone should see? Then leave a message in the comments below with the link!

P.S. Students in the 4th and 5th forms should remember what happened in Flint!
