Rube Goldberg Machine Contest Big Build Challenge Announcement Stream

NASEF is sponsoring the first-ever digital Rube Goldberg Machine Contest for students to creatively design fun chain-reaction contraptions. A Rube Goldberg Machine accomplishes a simple task in a complicated way and builds STEM, STEAM and engineering skills. The contest is free to all students nationally and internationally during this time of digital and remote learning.
