Rube Goldberg Machine Contest

Saturday, December 1, 2018 (Tentative) Competition: 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Awards Ceremony: 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location TBD

Supported with funding from Southern California Edison, the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools will be holding our third official Countywide Rube Goldberg Machine Contest. A Rube Goldberg Machine is a comically involved, complicated invention, laboriously contrived to perform a simple operation. The construction of these machines requires problem solving, patience, perseverance, collaboration, and strong communication skills. The contest invites 60 teams of 3-10 students at the elementary, middle and high school levels. In order to participate, team lead teachers must participate in an innovative mindset professional development provided by the Alliance for Education.
