Rube Goldberg Redux

From October 28, 2012

Rube Goldberg (1884-1970) was a Pulitzer Prize winning syndicated cartoonist who for more than 50 years' delighted his readers with his humorous drawings depicting very elaborate means to accomplish the most simple tasks (think the "Mousetrap" game).

The Rube Goldberg Machine Contest (RGMC) is a team effort open to students ages middle school-college using physics & engineering principles combined with zany, bizarre humor to invent in the spirit of Mr. Goldberg.
