WHS Rube Goldberg Contraption
Students in Brian Ruplinger’s Physics II class at Waupaca High School took this machine to a regional Rube Goldberg Machine Contest Friday, March 7, at the Waukesha County Technical College and won fifth place. Students competing in the Rube Goldberg contest must create a machine that completes a simple task with a minimum of 20 steps. The contest is named after the Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist and inventor Reuben Goldberg whose illustrations often featured humorous, complicated gadgets.
