What is a Rube Goldberg Machine?

Rube Goldberg Machine (RGM) is a crazy contraption which accomplishes a simple task in the most complicated and funniest way possible! Based on the “invention” cartoons of the famous, Pulitzer Prize-Winning Cartoonist, Rube Goldberg. His drawings and imagined machines are at the heart of the Rube Goldberg Machine Contest. They use everyday items (mostly junk!), they tell a story, and most important of all — they make you laugh!

 

What is a Rube Goldberg Machine Contest?

Rube Goldberg Machine Contest (RGMC) is an event where students of all ages compete with machines that they have imagined, designed and created in a fun and competitive forum. Our STEM centric competitions encourage teamwork and out-of-the-box problem solving, in a fresh learning environment that levels the playing field.

To win, all you need is a great Imagination and a pile of junk!
