Rube Goldberg Challenge

Jennifer George – legacy director of Rube Goldberg Inc. and the legendary cartoonist’s granddaughter – runs the annual Rube Goldberg Machine competition, that encourages families to work collaboratively and have fun! Rube Goldberg is renowned for designing absurdly elaborate contraptions to accomplish the simplest tasks, and Jennifer is inviting people at home to build their own.


Jennifer George promotes creative ways of using Rube Goldberg artworks in STEM and STEAM education (science, technology, engineering, art and math).
