For the 6th year in a row, Birchland Park Middle School students built Rube Goldberg machines as part of the Gifted and Talented Program. Kids met after school once a week for three months, taking on engineering challenges. The grand finale was a Rube Goldberg machine, judged by members of our faculty and staff. The goal of the machine was to "make time fly without killing time"; that is, they would make a clock travel without breaking it. All the teams accomplished the task successfully.
