STEM Everyday: #144 | Carrying on the Legacy of Rube Goldberg | feat. Jennifer George

Jennifer George is a clothing designer, author, and Rube Goldberg’s granddaughter (yes, that Rube Goldberg). She is also the legacy director of Rube Goldberg Inc, an organization dedicated to helping extend the legacy of Rube’s work. Each year they sponsor a Rube Goldberg Machine Contest, an event where students of all ages compete with machines that they have imagined, designed and created in a fun and competitive forum. The competitions encourage teamwork and out-of-the-box problem solving, in a fresh learning environment and level playing field. All you need is a good imagination and a pile of junk!
