5-Days Spring Break Camp: Think Like Rube Goldberg

The Fab Lab at WorkChops

Spend Spring Break learning with simple machines while playing with chain reactions. This fun, five-day camp is for the young inventor that wants to be inspired by the work of cartoonist and engineer, Rube Goldberg. Individual campers will use math, physics, and engineering to make Goldberg-esque contraptions.

WorkChops was selected by the Rube Goldberg Foundation as a host for 2019, the only such venue in the DFW area. As a host group, together we will build a larger project to submit to the official 2019 National Rube Goldberg competition. This year’s challenge is, “Put Money in a Piggy Bank.” Do you have the chops to create with us? If so, you may Register at our website.
