State Rube Goldberg Contest

The 2020 North Dakota State Fair is canceled but that doesn’t mean we have to cancel the state Rube Goldberg contest!

The state Rube Goldberg contest will be held virtually August 3rd-14th. The same rule book will be used and teams will interact virtually while building their machines through an application called Goose Chase. Videos of the machines will be posted to YouTube by August 14th, and judges will judge the machine, the team journal and team presentation. A watch party and awards will be done through Zoom after the judges judge all the machines. Registration for the contest is now open and will close on July 24th. More details will be sent after registration closes but you don’t have to wait until August to start building your machine. The rule book, Rube Goldberg activities and a video detailing the contest are all posted at the website below.
