This was our final project for Mr. Mac's AP Physics class. Our task was to design and build a Rube Goldberg machine of some kind, and we chose to use ours to launch an Estes rocket. After multiple failures, one major design change, and two lost rockets, we had success.
The video was filmed using multiple cameras and angles in order to give you the best view. While you may suspect that this was done to edit out our failures, it was actually done because it was impossible to catch it all at once. This machine did work all the way through.
