Rube Goldberg Competition

Fri, 05/04/2018 - 11:53am
Join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of teams of fourth and fifth grade students who participated in the HCLS/HCPSS Rube Goldberg Challenge. Since last fall, these students have been working to incorporate STEM principles into the design and construction of an elaborate machine to fill and close a container in a complex way.
 
Beginning at 6 pm, students will be available to discuss their contraptions in a science fair format.
 
At 7 pm, we will recognize teams for the Most Scientific Invention, Most Humorous Invention, Most Complex Invention, Most Green Invention, Most Complicated System, and Community Favorite Invention.
