Join our 8th graders for the annual Rube Goldberg Invention Convention on March 19! This is an annual event that gives Nashua Catholic students an opportunity to gather to enjoy science. Students use household items to try to build the most complex machine possible, to accomplish a simple task. The purpose of the event is to provide an opportunity for learning about Rube Goldberg machines, how things work, and basic principles of science in a challenging but entertaining way.
Rube Goldberg was an artist, inventor, engineer, author and sculptor. He is best known for his comical drawings of crazy contraptions and inventions. His artwork appeared in newspapers throughout the United States from the early 1900’s to the 1960’s. Today, the term Rube Goldberg is used to signify anything done in an overly complicated or round-about manner.
Join us in the gym on March 19 at 6:30 PM, as our 8th graders show off their Rube Goldberg machines. This is a great night for all who love science! Whether the task may be snoozing the alarm clock, feeding your dog, or watering the garden, there are always some very interesting and unique ways to complete the simplest of tasks, in a complicated fashion!
