2008 Summer Program

Pitagora Souchi is a Japanese educational television program which features remarkable Rube Goldbergesque relays, triggered mostly by marbles. Study tricks of master mechanics from Japan. Invent your own stunts of balance, momentum, triggers and traps. Consider the discipline of precision. Then join in the video production of a 30 step relay that will be posted on the web. Create a toolbox (organized with Japanese attention to detail) to carry all of your parts home to create your own inventions. The sixth of our Pythagoras Switch Studies.
