A team of local high school students affiliated with the Israel Resource Center of Rochester built an elaborate Rube Goldberg machine based on Einstein’s Theory of Relativity as part of a worldwide contest sponsored by the Technion Israel Institute of Technology.
Students were encouraged to use problem-solving skills and teamwork to build a multi-step chain-reaction machine and creatively incorporate themed elements into their entries.
The top three teams receive prizes with each of the first-place team members receiving a one-year full scholarship to the Technion. The IRC Team will be receiving an Arduino set for placing third.
Participating students include Batya Cherney, Brighton High School; Danielle Green and Yuval Green, Pittsford Sutherland; and Danielle Maimon and Nate Snyderman, Brighton High School.
