My Take

I highly recommend this app as an instructional tool. Students learn the cause and effect of one item on another. It is highly interactive and students wanted to use the game as a reward.

How I Use It

I used this app prior to my unit on Building a Rube Goldberg contraption. I paired students up and used the iPad version of the game. 7th and 8th grade students worked together and solved as many brain bending levels as possible. I uses this as a way for students to challenge each other. Paired groups worked well. Many students ended up purchasing the game to play on their own time.
