"Veeblefetzer" - A Rube Goldberg Invention Competition

March 30, 2019
In participation with the 2019 Living Science Museum

The Zeta Delta Chapter of Theta Tau challenges students to compete in The University of South Carolina’s annual Rube Goldberg Invention Challenge. Working on a Rube Goldberg Machine is a great way to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills in a non-traditional engineering environment. There will be a regular and junior competition to encourage participation from students of all ages. Participants will also get the opportunity to meet other students and discover a more light-hearted and humorous side of the world of engineering.
