How did I miss this? Reminds me of a video we watched back in high school called 'The Domino Effect'. Had all sorts of things such as off weighted tires rolling up hills. I wonder if that could be done with Lego tires... ~Thoy
This is not what you call 'amazing,' this is the definition of 'amazing!' Reminds me some of the great ball contraption they have every year at the local LEGO Con. Except this one has more then just balls, it has dominos, and cars, and pigs! Great Job!
So AWESOME! Make sure this gets into the Lego in Education group, if it's not there already. Teaching question: How did you organize this? Did you build portions of it? Did you assign students parts? Brainstorm ideas? I'd love to know more about how you orchestrated this masterpiece.
Man, I sure wish I had classes like this when I was a kid! I might not have turned out the disfunctional, maladjusted freak I am today...er, anyway, this is absolute genious and I can tell was a lot of fun for the kids!
Well done Bats, I think the most telling thing for me watching the first video is just seeing the feet of one of your students hopping up and done like mad at the completion of the action - I know from my own 4-year old that is a sure sign of enjoyment and excitement. Great stuff.
cool that's very good you should see ok go's music vid for this too shall pass they have a massive Rube Goldberg Machine and one part of it uses Lego + song is good too. link if you want to check it out. http://youtu.be/qybUFnY7Y8w
Let me tell you something, Detective. Last Saturday I visited my old school (40th anniversary of the school building). Many of my old teachers were there and I used the chance to thank some of them. They were an important part of my youth, they helped making me the one I am today and I'm glad they did. I'm sure, somewhere in the future, if Bane doesn't get you first, some of your students will thank you.
