Seventeen teams from across the country joined us on April 5 at WCTC for the 2014 National Rube Goldberg Contest, presented by Time Warner Cable.
The challenge was to zip a zipper in 20 or more steps. Teams showed off their ingenuity with designs like airports, camping and theme parks.
Jennifer George, granddaughter to Rube Goldberg, and kinetic artist Joseph Herscher, also joined us at the competition.
Six teams advanced to the finals: Loyal from Wisconsin, New Auburn from Wisconsin, Columbia Central from Michigan, St. Catherine's from Wisconsin, McDonogh from Maryland, and Minooka from Illinois. New Auburn took first place with their Frankenstein themed machine.
Congratulations to all of our
winners and special award winners!
