Raising an Object 35 Centimeters
Multiple objects will be raised in this Rube Goldberg machine. The majority of them will be raven heads. On my tumbler there will be eight raven heads. As the tumbler spins each head will go around and end up at a height of 35 centimeters above the lowest point. I will also have a train and elevator rise 35 centimeters. They will be attached using a string or rope through a pulley and onto a heavy weight which will eventually travel 35 centimeters down to cause the elevator's rise. Both the rave heads and the train and elevator are key parts of the machine.
