Rube Goldberg Challenge

Clay County is looking for teams to meet the challenge of creating their own Rube Goldberg machine. Learn critical thinking, creativity, innovation and problem solving in a non-traditional learning event and have fun at the same time! Young people in third through eighth grades can compete in these friendly science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) team competitions, which take place at county fairs. Teams that quality at their county fair may get to compete at the Minnesota State Fair. Contact Lisa Kasson-Bauer at or 218-299-5020 for more information.  Check out this video to see what a unique project this is.
