Rube Goldberg Machine Minecraft Contest

2023 Digital Rube Goldberg Machine Minecraft Contest

The Digital Rube Goldberg Machine Minecraft Contest is a STEAM competition where students from grades 3-12 compete with machines that they have imagined, designed in Minecraft Education Edition, and created in a fun and competitive forum.

The competitions encourage teamwork and out-of-the-box problem-solving in a fresh learning environment and level playing field. Teams will be given a challenge to complete one simple task. 

Through this event, we'll run live streams to help youth learn about the engineering design process as they build their contraptions. Plus, the Digital Rube Goldberg Machine Contest with Minecraft Education Edition is FREE for all teams!

Details on the 2023 season are coming soon! Sign up below to get updated!
