  • Students create virtual Rube Goldberg machine

    When most people think of accomplishing a task, they look for the easiest, straightest path with fewest steps to reach their goal.

    An American cartoonist, sculptor, author, engineer, and inventor named Rube Goldberg (1883-1970), however, turned that pattern of thought on its head as he is best known for a series of popular cartoons depicting complicated gadgets that perform simple tasks in indirect, multi-step ways to produce a falling-domino effect. His process of problem solving gave rise to the term Rube Goldberg machines.
