This year we’ve created a unique competition that combines live team building at school or at home, with online submissions that culminate in an online awards ceremony on April 10th at 9am PT. Teams from all over the world have been building complex Rube Goldberg Machines for months.
Today YOU get to vote for your favorite!
Family (all ages,) Apprentice (8 - 11 years old,) Division I (11 - 14 years old) and Division II (14 - 18 years old)
Teams are in no particular order. Videos are their Full Machine Run.
A 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!
A 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!
