What is a Rube Goldberg Machine?
A Rube Goldberg machine is a contraption, invention, device, or apparatus that is deliberately over-engineered to perform a simple task in a complicated fashion, generally including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg (1883–1970).

PLEASE NOTE: Students will be working with tools to build their machines. As with any project involving tools, safety precautions must be adhered to at all times to avoid injury. If at any time a student is not behaving appropriately or is misusing tools and endangering others, they may be asked to leave the camp and NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN. Please consider this before registering your child for this camp.
