STEM Forward: Rube Goldberg Machine Challenge

What is a Rube Goldberg Machine? A Rube Goldberg Machine is a crazy contraption that accomplishes a simple task in the most complicated, and comical, way possible!

What is a Rube Goldberg Machine Challenge? An event where students of all ages compete with the wacky machines they have imagined, designed, and created that complete the annual challenge. The contest started in 1988 and is based on the “invention” cartoons of the famous Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, Rube Goldberg. Each year, a new challenge is determined and students’ scrounge for everyday items to put together their machines to tell a story, make you laugh, and complete the task!
