Step 1: Candle Is Lit
We light our small candle which will be placed under fishing line to burn the fishing line which starts our Rube Goldberg.
Step 2: The String Then Allows the Pulley System to Fall Onto the Dominos
Once the string is burnt, our pulley system activates and a cup filled with rocks falls onto dominoes.
Step 3: Dominos Fall Onto the Tire Pushing It
The dominoes and hit a tire which rolls into more dominoes that starts more chain reactions.
Step 4: The Ball Rolls Into the Dominoes at the Other End
From here the tire hits the next set of dominoes that we have placed.
Step 5: Dominoes Split Into 2 Paths
The dominoes that were hit by the rolling tire split off into two paths for different outcomes on both sides.
Step 6: Spiked Domino Hits Balloon Filled With Beads
There is a domino with a needle taped to it, this domino pops a balloon filled with beads and the beads start another chain reaction.
Step 7: Pipe Leads Beads Into Boat
The beads from the balloon fall into the PVC pipe and the pipe leads into a boat in water.
Step 8: Boat Sinks
The boat is the to heavy for the water and the boat sinks and the water falls out of its container.
Step 9: Dominoes Fall Into the Marble Waiting at Top of Coaster
While the boat is sinking, the dominoes hit a marble that is previously placed at the top of a roller coaster.
Step 10: Coaster Happens
The marble then runs through the coaster.
Step 11: Light Comes On
The marble hit the dominoes at the bottom of the coaster and the dominoes fall to complete a circuit and the light bulb turns on.
