On March 4 the 2011 Rube Goldberg Machine Contest was held at the WCTC Pewaukee Campus. An unprecedented nineteen high school teams stepped up to this year's challenge: watering a plant in twenty or more steps. The competition featured a variety of clever themes like Gotham City, Wall-E, George of the Jungle, Harry Potter, and even a real working bathroom with functioning shower.
With all the amazing work these students put together it was no surprise the competition
was a very close race. Five teams advanced to the finals: Berlin High
School, Janesville Craig High School, Kimberly High School, Pius XI
High School, and St. Catherine's High School. In the end Kimberly won
first place with their Wall-E machine. They went on to compete at the
National High school Rube Goldberg Machine Contest on March 19 at
Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI.
