UPEI’s second-year engineering design class students will be demonstrating their “Rube Goldberg” machines on Friday, October 12, from 3–5 pm in McMillan Hall. These contraptions are deliberately over-engineered or overdone machines that perform a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The student devices are extremely complex, colorful, extravagant, entertaining, and unpredictable. The best of the useless machines will win a cash prize donated by Engineers PEI!
UPEI and Engineers PEI are pleased to work together to provide a fun competition for engineering students and to reward creativity and hard work through the “Rube Goldberg” machine competition.
Come check out these hilarious contraptions and meet with engineering students, faculty, and representatives from Engineers PEI. All are welcome to attend.
