Competiton

Competition season is a wild time.  Teams rushing to do the final touches on their machines.  Crews working to set up signs for the event.  Teams and fans all crowding into Purdue’s campus.  All the while everyone knows that the craziest engineering machines are soon to be unveiled.

This year’s competition should be just as exciting as years past.  This year we will be straying away from the complexities of dealing with food and electricity.  This year we will try to hit this task on the head.

The task to be accomplished this year by every Rube Goldberg contestant has been revealed!

2015 task

"The goal for 2015 is: "Erase a Chalkboard"


Doesn’t sound challenging?  It isn’t but it’s our goal to make it challenging and complicated!.  That’s why we want you to see the show!

As the PSPE Rube Goldberg Team, we want to invite everyone to come to competition!  It is an exciting time for people of all ages.  You can come to the Purdue’s sponsored Regional competition and see what your community teams have created this season.  You can also come to the National competition and see all the best teams from across the nation.  The best part is that the National competition is held right here at Purdue!

Both competitions are completely free to attend and we invite you to attend them both!  Come and show your support for engineering creativity!
