June Reuse and Rethink Contest: Rube Goldberg Machines

 

This month, we challenge you to use reused items in your home to create a Rube Goldberg machine! Named after a famous American cartoonist, a Rube Goldberg machine is a machine intentionally designed to perform a simple task in an indirect and overly complicated way. Create a series of simple objects that perform an action, triggering the next action, ultimately resulting in a singular goal. Please see the video below for an example!

DEADLINE
June 30th, 2020

HOW IT WORKS
– Materials must be reused
– You MUST incorporate a ladle and toilet or paper towel roll in your machine (so we know you made the video!)
– The submissions will be judged on three qualities: creativity, use of reused materials, and functionality of the machine
– Videos can be no longer than 3 minutes
– Submissions must be made on or before the deadline

PRIZE
A free bucket voucher from ACR and a $5 gift card

SUBMISSIONS
Please send a video of your machine, your contact info, and a short description of materials used to rethink@austincreativereuse.org. Winner will be notified and announced on social media!
