RUBE GOLDBERG EVENT AT EDISON! Encourage your 3rd-5th grader to be on a team for the first-ever Rube Goldberg Event here at Edison!   Click here for information and to see videos on the official Edison Studio 2020 Rube Goldberg Event website! Teams will use ordinary household objects from your homes to design and build a zany, over-engineered contraption to perform a very simple task!  The task for us? RING A COWBELL!    Starter kits (courtesy of the Edison PTA) include six items, including the cowbell, but many more items can and should be added from your homes! The teams should plan and design their Rube Goldberg machine before the event and then bring their supplies and mad engineering skills to the Edison Gym on April 7th from 5:00-6:30 p.m.!  Questions go to Mrs. Greska or Mrs. McGinnis! Each participant must submit a permission slip, available here.
