2014 Rube Goldberg College Machine Contest at COSI
Scenes from the 2014 Rube Goldberg College Machine Contest, held at COSI on Saturday, April 14, 2014.

A Rube Goldberg Machine is an overly complex contraption, designed with humor and a narrative, to accomplish a simple task. College teams from across the country competed to design the best Rube Goldberg Machine to successfully complete this year's challenge: zip a zipper!

Competing colleagues included Pennsylvania State University, Washington University of St. Louis, the University of Arizona, and Purdue University.
