Try Number One!

January 6, 2020

It was an awesome Rube Goldberg machine day today!  This middle school group got their balloon to pop on try number one!  CONGRATS!  This is such a fun hands-on activity that brings out the engineering in all of us!  

 

Who was Rube Goldberg?

 

RUBE GOLDBERG (1883-1970) was a cartoonist, an inventor, and the only person ever to be listed in Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary as an adjective. Of the nearly 50,000 cartoons he drew in his lifetime, Rube is best known for the zany contraptions of Professor Butts. These inventions, also known as Rube Goldberg Machines, solved a simple task in the most overcomplicated, inefficient, and hilarious way possible.

 

Rube Goldberg lives on in pop culture and is referenced daily in both print and digital media. His name is searchable, hash-taggable, and at best viral. But nowhere is his legacy more celebrated than through the competitions that bear his name.
