For almost 30 years, RUBE GOLDBERG MACHINE CONTESTS have showcased the humor and brains of students of all levels from all over the world. This year, for the very first time, the new not-for-profit organization Rube Goldberg, Inc (RGI) is hoping to raise funds to expand the competitions by reaching out to more students, schools and grass-roots organizations.
Recognized as a fun and unique way to support STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/ Design and Math) education, the Rube Goldberg Machine Contests are an inclusive platform to get everyone involved - and laughing - to create a machine which can accomplish a simple task in the most complicated way possible ! This year's assignment is to open an umbrella.
Your contribution can sponsor a team, help us reach out to more potential contestants and provide greater incentives for participation. While a Rube Goldberg Machine is typically made of simple, everyday household items - uh, some might say junk! - there are lots of expenses related to securing venues, organizing the events, recruiting as many teams as possible, travelling to the contests .... and, yes, on and on and on.
But we want as large and diversified a group of students to participate as possible, which is why we need your help. All Donations gratefully accepted!
