Rye Gouldberg Competition
A typical Rube Goldberg machine is a machine designed to perform a simple task in a very convoluted, complicated way. As you are all aspiring engineers, we figure it would be a fitting challenge to have you construct a Rye Gouldberg machine. Which is a Rube Goldberg machine that is made without physically interacting with the other people you’re building it with. Houses will be given time to construct the segments of their machine and then stitch together a video of it running as if it were one continuous machine. Points are awarded for how well your house can make it but also for how many extra bonus challenges you complete with your machine. Might want to brush up on your simple machines and look up an example or two beforehand. We recommend looking up: “This Too Shall Pass by Ok Go”.
