A special thank you to our 2013 Judges:
With more than 1000 people in attendance, the Rube Goldberg Machine Contest College Nationals on March 30, was an overwhelming success. Hosted by the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) in Columbus, Ohio, children, students, parents, grandparents and interested onlookers had a wonderful time watching students run their machines and compete for the number ONE spot. The machines were wild, and the crowd and students, extremely enthusiastic!
