The students were members of the Purdue chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers team. Last year’s competition required teams to use a minimum of 20 steps to individually shred five sheets of paper. The 2006 winning team, the Purdue chapter of the Society of Professional Engineers, used 215 steps to complete the task and went on to win the Rube Goldberg National Machine Contest.

The 24th annual event will take place at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 24, with the winner moving on to the March 31 national competition. Purdue teams have won the national competition for the past four years. Both the regional and national events will take place in the Purdue Armory, with doors opening at 9:30 a.m. The contests, sponsored by Phi Chapter of Theta Tau fraternity, are free and open to the public. For this year’s competition, the challenge is to squeeze the juice from an orange into a pitcher and then pour the juice into a glass. Purdue teams registered to compete in this year’s regional contest are the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Purdue Society of Professional Engineers, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers. A team from Murray State University in Murray, Ky., also will participate. The Indiana High School Rube Goldberg Machine Contest will follow the Purdue regional competition awards ceremony. The high school event is being coordinated by the Purdue Society of Women Engineers and will begin at 2 p.m. “We’ve turned the event into a full day of fun,” said Sean Noonan, a sophomore majoring in mechanical engineering from Perrineville, N.J., and Theta Tau’s regional contest chairman. “We’ll also have food venders at the event so families can spend the entire day at Purdue. Because of the high school competition, we’re expecting the largest crowd ever.” 1 of 3
