Rube Goldberg Challenge

March 29, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

We are getting ready to form our annual Rube Goldberg challenge teams!

Students in grades 1-12 (students are grouped by age to work on their projects) are invited to design & build a ridiculous, multi-step ‘machine’ to perform one simple task. The machines will compete in the Rube Goldberg Challenge Saturday, April 1, 2023, at the Central Columbia Elementary School.

Museum teams will meet Wednesdays, March 8, 15, 22, and 29th 6-7:30 pm to create the contraption for the competition. These crazy contraptions popularized by Rube Goldberg promotes STEM concepts and teach hands-on physics of ‘simple machines’ using humor & scientific persistence.
