2nd Place in Nationals!! Anderson High School's Rube Goldberg Team ROCKS!

Every year the Rube Goldberg Organization challenges students to create 'a crazy contraption which accomplishes a simple task in the most complicated - and funniest - way possible!' (

Our Anderson High School team used engineering design principles to construct a machine that would complete a simple task in a series of complicated steps. The Rube Goldberg Organization assigned all teams to "pour a bowl of cereal," and AHS students did so in over 70 steps. The team competed against fifteen schools from around the nation.

Team sponsor, David Perrel, is very proud of the amazing accomplishment of these students and all the persistence and team-work they showed this season.

AHS students involved in the project are:
Dakotah Alumbaugh   Makenna Hawes
Landon Alumbaugh   Lisa Leisure
Simon Bell   Spencer Miller
Steven Boyd   Brandon Pepper
Garrett Dunaway   Hailey Short  
Jon Faulkenberg   Owen Zheng
Logan Hamilton
