Welcome to the University of Arizona Rube Goldberg Club's website!If you are interested in engineering, creativity, design, and having fun, feel free to join us!

Looking for the University of Arizona Rube Goldberg Club's official website? You're in the right place!

The UA Rube Goldberg Club is an engineering design team which competes in the annual Rube Goldberg Machine Contest. The team will compete in this year's competition at Perdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.

A Rube Goldberg machine performs a simple task in an overly complex, elaborate, humorous sequence of linked steps.

This year's task is to put toothpaste on a toothbrush.

Students must work as a team to design, build, test, and compete their machine, all while staying within a tight budget. The club fosters hands-on engineering experience, creative problem solving, professional growth, and most importantly, having a ton of fun.

Our machine's theme this year is Movie Set.

New members are always welcome and encouraged to join. It is not necessary to be an engineering major. Come to a meeting and say hello!
