Maker Camp: Rube Goldberg Machine

By | Epic Extras

Rube Goldberg Machine

This will be a week of whimsical fun creating chain reaction machines like those made famous by Rube Goldberg where a seemingly simple task is made unnecessarily complicated. Teams will link several different stages to make the machine complete a simple task such as launching a rocket or dropping a trap. Success will require teamwork, problem solving, contraption design, prototyping and testing. The end of the week will be the big reveal when the machines are put to the test for all to witness.

July 22nd – August 2nd, 9:00am – 1:00pm

Classes/camps scheduled for July will appear for online purchase in May.
Classes/camps scheduled for August will appear for online purchase in June.
Any class/camp date may be purchased in person at The Epic.
