Home /  Courses And Programs / Rube Goldberg: Engineering

From gadgets, to gravity, to spinning wheels, this is the class for engineering imagination. Working in teams we build interactive structures where a simple push starts a chain reaction of pulleys, dominoes and so much more. These crazy types of systems, initially the idea of Mr. Rube Goldberg, began as a parody of the modern world. Now they’re fun. Here we engineer this art into life with a few machines of our own: wasting time and energy in the pursuit of “simple”.
