Team & Volunteer Registration OPEN:

2019 Rube Goldberg Competition


02 MARCH 2019

8:30 AM - 4:00 PM



A Rube Goldberg Machine Contest (RGMC) is an event where students of all ages compete with the machines they have imagined, designed and created in a fun and competitive forum. The competitions encourage teamwork and out-of-the-box problem solving, in a fresh learning environment and level playing field. Remember, to compete in an RGMC all you need is a pile of junk and a great imagination!

SWE BWS will be hosting a Division II High School Regional Competition.

Know a high school that would be interested in competing? Pass along the website below!

Volunteers and Leads needed!

We will need day of volunteers as well as Lead volunteers! Leads do not require any prior experience. This is a great opportunity to get involved with BWS SWE!

Volunteer registration is also available on our site.

Lead positions are needed ASAP!
