The Kid Should See This

Audri’s Rube Goldberg Monster Trap

My 3-year-old loved watching this kid and his Rube Goldberg Machine monster trap. Audri is seven and has been making Rube Goldberg machines since he was five. He’s inspired by Bill Nye, Beakman, Mythbusters, Joseph Herscher, and this OKGO video, and we’re inspired by him. Seriously, an enthusiastic kid with a Rube Goldberg machine, a hypothesis and a chart ready for recording data? GO AUDRI!
