LCISD Rube Goldberg Competition

A Rube Goldberg machine is a deliberately complex "machine" in which a series of devices are linked together to complete a simple task. Developing a Rube Goldberg machine allows our students opportunities to be creative thinkers, use key concepts they have learned about simple machines, and to work together as a team in creating a truly novel, unique creation!

Below is the information of current year's Rube Goldberg Competition details and results. If you want to see previous year's information, please check the Rube Goldberg Archive.
