Video: 4-H Rube Goldberg Challenge gets kids excited about STEM!




Minnesota 4-H’s annual Rube Goldberg challenge is getting youth excited about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Rube Goldberg machines are overly complex contraptions that can do a simple task using everyday items in whimsical ways that interact in a series of chain-reactions. The annual 4-H Engineering Design Challenge helps youth develop 21st century learning and innovation skills – critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity – and science and engineering skills through a fun, hands-on contest.
