The fifth grade Dual Language class from Leal Elementary is moving on to the regional competition of the 2016-17 Rube Goldberg contest. The group placed third in the local Engineer in the Classroom competition and that allowed them to advance to regionals. That contest will be held during Engineering Open House on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus. The regional competition will be Friday, March 10, 2017, from 9am to 12noon.
The students created the Rube Goldberg machine to perform the everyday task of pouring cereal into a bowl. These future engineers from Ms. Gabriela Romero's class choose a Map of Urbana as the theme for their machine.
