DANBURY, Conn. -- Danbury High School's Connecticut Pre-Engineering Program took home the "Best Project Team" award at the  2015 National Rube Goldberg Machine contest on Saturday, April 18.

The contest was hosted by STEM Forward at the Waukesha County Technical College in Peewaukee, Wis. High school teams from all over the country competed at the national event.

The Danbury team recently won first place at the regional contest during the Lower Hudson Engineering Expo in White Plains, N.Y.

The Rube Goldberg Machine Contest challenges teams of high school students, participating in an engineering program, to build a machine to do a very simple task in a complicated way. Students transform everyday materials into their own wacky and innovative machines.
