What’s the connection between Rube Goldberg and Penn State?
Cartoonist Reuben Lucius Goldberg created cartoons that combined simple machines and common household items. These complex contraptions were then put to use accomplishing trivial tasks. Now each year, Penn State Engineering students have the opportunity to put Goldberg’s ingenuity to the test with their own creations in the Rube Goldberg Machine Contest. Rube Goldberg made a difference. Now you can too—make your difference by making a gift today.
