Students Compete in Rube Goldberg Competition

Three teams from Carolyn Waugh's 7th and 8th grade science classes from Bartlett Elementary competed in the first annual Rube Goldberg competition at Greenbush on Tuesday, April 17th. During the competition, the simple task of watering a plant was made complex by adding a maximum of 75 steps. Students were judged on repurposing of everyday items, the "laugh barometer", theme or story, artistry and construction, and absurd complexity. They were also judged by how the machine runs, communication, and teamwork.  The 3 Bartlett teams captured the top 3 overall places.

1st Overall "The Big Einsteins" Tanner George, Matheau Atwell, Justin Whittley, Camden Farrow, Shainna Farrow, Brody Pool, and ShyAnne Wiley

2nd Overall "Outside the Box"  Back row: Ashlynn White, Paige Davis, Gracie Moore

Front Row: Molly Gray, Braelyn Shankland, Caedynse Ghering

3rd Overall  "Bigfoot the Bodacious" Shelby DuVall, Charli Alloway, Trace Falkenstien, Griffin Eaton, Kolby Hastings, Cecilia Newby, Carmen Eisenbrandt

These students have worked very hard along with a few volunteers to help them accomplish this task! Bartlett Grade School students and staff are extremely proud of these students hard work and dedication!
