ACTION ITEM

There’s an American guy who draws really elaborate inventions called, Rube Goldberg.  

His device for washing a window involved leaving a banana skin on the floor so a man would trip on it, causing him to fall on a rake which tossed a horseshoe in the air which landed on a rope that tilted a watering can that wet a mop and woke up a dog who knocked over a sign that fell against the mop and made it wipe a window. 

You can find his cool inventions here...https://www.rubegoldberg.com/rube-the-artist/gallery/

Do you reckon you could design something similar?  It doesn’t have to be that complicated, maybe it’s just tying a hairbrush to your dog’s tail to make an automatic hair brushing machine when your dog wags its tail?

Use your imagination because that’s exactly what you need to be a good inventor!

Draw us a picture of your invention and send it into [email protected].  We’d love to see how your inventive mind works!
