Calling all people with wacky imaginations!
Come compete with like-minded inventors and zany tinkerers in the Rube Goldberg Experiment at the Westport Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, April 28 at the Westport Public Library.
Teams comprised of 3, 4 or 5 members will be given an assortment of materials and 90 minutes to assemble a machine that can perform asimple task (flip a pancake or crack an egg for example). The more interesting the design and the more energy transfers the better.
Two rounds of competition with two to five teams per round will result in some unorthodox and entertaining contraptions. One round is for students & teachers and the other round open to teams that have pre-registered. All decisions of the judges will be final.
Interested in creating kooky contraptions? Contestants should sign up by going to the Westport Mini Maker Faire “Contact Us” page (http://www.makerfairewestport.org/contact-us-2/), fill in your contact information, select “Enter ‘Rube Goldberg’ Competition” from the Subject drop-down menu and then tell us about your group in the Message area.
