On February 24, South High’s Society of Women Engineers Club earned third place at the Rube Goldberg Machine Contest at Hoffman Estates High School.
A Rube Goldberg Machine is a whimsical contraption designed to accomplish a simple task in an overly complicated way. This year's task for the contest was to create a contraption that pours a bowl of cereal.
Team members Emmanuelle Copeland, Cecilia Divis, Dyanna Boone, Haneen Jubran, and Cynthia Hernandez-Ramirez built a movie-themed machine to accomplish the task. View photos and videos of their machine by clicking here!
The Society of Women Engineers Club plans on participating in the Rube Goldberg Machine contest again next spring.
“When not working on the Rube Goldberg Machine, the Club engages in activities including researching engineering careers and college majors, hosting guest speakers, participating in youth STEM outreach, and working on hands-on engineering projects,” South High physics teacher Marybeth Senser said.
