World Record Book holder Zach Umperovitch came to Polaris in late February to talk about Rube Goldberg Machines with our students and to assist our students as they built their own Rube Goldberg Machines. He presented to our Intermediate students and then visited two classrooms and gave them assistance on their projects. He also came back a few weeks later for additional support.
Zach has been building Rube Goldberg machines since he was three, led the Rube Goldberg team at Purdue University for six years, and holds two Guinness World Records for the longest machine ever built. He has worked with Syyn Labs in California to build a Rube Goldberg machine for ESPN SportsNation and has contributed to countless other Rube Goldberg projects.
