We are the AMET Rube Goldberg team. Our goal is to build an overly complicated machine that completes a simple task. This year’s task is to apply a bandage. In previous years, we have built machines to open an umbrella, erase a chalk board, and zip a zipper. In the 2015 National Contest, AMET placed second overall and won the best single step award. This past year AMET placed first in the Purdue University Regional competition and won people’s choice award. Ingenuity is the key to success when designing a Rube Goldberg machine and we are always open for new members (all inclusive, no need to be an engineer).
