The 4th annual Valley Christian Junior High School Rube Goldberg Competition was once again a resounding success! The completion was held on February 28. Eleven teams consisting of two to four students competed to be named the most inventive group to create a sound in at least ten different steps. Students were judged on the number of simple machines that were incorporated, organization, teamwork, creativity, success, as well as other important factors. Their machines were expected to make a simple task as complex as possible utilizing their math, science, and creativity skills. Students arrived at 8:30am to begin building their machines.

It was wonderful to admire the teamwork, perseverance, and creative gifts that God has given our students! Winners: The Effort E
