The Making of The Digital Rube Goldberg Machine Minecraft Contest
The students shine in this panel when you see their projects in action! Jennifer George, granddaughter of the brilliant cartoonist, engineer and inventor Rube Goldberg will present how The Digital Rube Goldberg Machine Minecraft Contest transformed the physical to the digital world. The event is a STEAM competition where students from grades 3-12 compete with machines that they have imagined, designed in Minecraft Education Edition. The event encourages teamwork and out-of-the-box problem solving, challenging youth to build wacky chain reaction machines and inspiring communication, while honing skills like math, physics and chemistry.
