A seven year old boy named Audri (and his mother) created a YouTube video of a Rube Goldberg machine that he built. Not only did he build it, but he also uses the scientific method to gauge how many successes and failures the machine will have. Inspiring!
Rube Goldberg was born in San Francisco in 1883 and attended UC Berkeley as an Engineering major. He never actually built any of the machines he drew cartoons of, but plenty of people have. In fact, there are competitions for high school and college students to create working Rube Goldberg machines.
