Isolation at home inspired a California family to build an elaborate two-story Rube Goldberg machine, and it probably didn't hurt that mom was a high school science teacher.
The apparatus included books, an exercise ball, a baseball bat and a skateboard, which were set in motion by the domino effect. The chain culminated in the scoring of a soccer goal on a table football when the family broke out ceremoniously, as the video showed.
High school science teacher Andrea Michlovitch said the San Diego family, including their son, daughter, and husband, took approximately 13 hours to build and test the machine, and approximately 25 attempts to get it up to let it run successfully in the end.
"The filmed product was the only complete completion. I'm so happy I saw it in the film," Michlovitch told Reuters. "It was great teamwork!"
