From the Community: Aliso Niguel High School Team Wins Engineering Competition

Students move on to National Competition in Indiana.

On Feb. 26, five juniors from Aliso Niguel High School and their physics teacher traveled to the University of Arizona, in Tucson, to compete in the western region's Rube Goldberg Machine Challenge.

Their unique machine consisted of 35 mechanical devices, designed by the team using physics rules, which moved several balls in a domino effect to successfully water a plant. They entered the college division and were awarded first place.

This win allows the team to attend the national competition to be held at Purdue University, IA, in March.
