Riverhead High School is participating in a regional competition to build a complicated “Rube Goldberg” machine.
The fourth annual Long Island Regional Rube Goldberg competition scheduled for Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City.
Students are asked to transform everyday materials into “wacky innovative machines,” according to a press release. There needs to be at least 20 steps taken in creating the new machine, the contest rules states.
Last year, Riverhead won third place after building a contraption that made a hammer hit a nail. This year’s task is titled, “Zip a Zipper.”
