    For the past three years we've always done the students drawing a Rube Goldberg machine. I need to do the project on computers this year and am finding that it might be difficult to "draw" a Rube Goldberg machine on the computers. I'm trying to think of a new project that encompasses: simple machines and forces.

    Another idea I had was for the students to create a new tool that could help people and have it include at least 3 simple machines. Then the students make an ad for their tool, and write a description of the different simple machines it uses.

    Perhaps crash test dummies in various scenarios eg hitting a wall, hitting another moving crash test dummy or hitting a stationary crash test dummy. This would encompass forces and motion.
