Chatfield repeats as Rube Goldberg Champs

It’s money in the (piggy) bank. The Chatfield STEM team took first place in the April 6 national Rube Goldberg machine competition in Lawrenceburg, Ind.

It was the second straight title for Chatfield.

The contest, named after turn-of-the-century inventor Rube Goldberg, challenges students to complete a simple task using whimsical machines and multiple, complicated steps.

This year’s task was to put money into a piggy bank. Any theme or task leading to that end was allowed.
