Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Our machine design this year is one of a kind! The theme is "Celebrating Diversity" where we focus on a handful of countries around the world and the holidays they celebrate. We show a variety of holidays everywhere from Fourth of July to Chinese New Year! The machine ends by having a bowling ball globe roll over a Band-Aid and "change the world" and all of it's problems.
