Rube Goldberg 200


Planning for the 2nd Philadelphia Rube Goldberg Machine Contest is underway, and the competition will take place in March 2017. Middle school and high school students from the Philadelphia region will compete to build the best Rube Goldberg machine that accomplishes the assigned task: Apply a Band-Aid.

The event is open to the public and free to attend.

The Philadelphia Rube Goldberg Machine Contest was founded by Victor Fiorillo and is program of CultureTrust Greater Philadelphia, a 501c3 independent charitable trust supporting arts and heritage programs of diverse disciplines and cultural traditions.

Rube Goldberg Philadelphia is a volunteer-driven, non-profit initiative. Our machine contest qualifies the winning team in each division to participate in the national Rube Goldberg Machine Contests, held in April of each year.

They had three 1 hour class periods to complete their task. Here’s what a couple of the student teams did.
