WHAT IS A RUBE GOLDBERG MACHINE CONTEST?

A Rube Goldberg Machine Contest (RGMC) is an event where students compete with the machines they have imagined, designed and created in a fun and competitive forum. The competitions encourage teamwork and out-of-the-box problem solving, in a fresh learning environment and level playing field. To compete in a RGMC, all you need is a good imagination and a pile of junk!
