A Rube Goldberg machine is a device, using chain reactions, which is intentionally over engineered to perform a simple task in a complicated way. Among the team members was Gillian Seale, who received a campership from the SLC AAUW ‘Open Windows for Girls Program.’ The program provides camperships for SLC girls to attend enrichment programs.
