Students, faculty and guests gathered at Grays Harbor College on Thursday afternoon to watch the demonstration of two Rube Goldberg Machines built by students as part of a class project. A Rube Goldberg Machine is an overly complex machine that performs a simple task, which in the case of Kenji Seta’s introduction to engineering class, was to ring a bell using 25 to 30 feet of mechanical contraptions involving five stages, three simple machines and three forms of energy. The class was split into two teams, each successful in creating a working Rube Goldberg Machine in time for Thursday’s demonstration.
