Technion Jewish Day School Challenge

For the first time ever, RAVSAK and Technion - Israel Institute of Technology invite day school students to participate in the Technion Jewish Day School Challenge by building Pesach themed Rube Goldberg machines.


Inspired by the Rube Goldberg machine created by Technion students to depict the story of Pesach, the Challenge asks day school students to make the project their own. Teams of students from Jewish day schools are invited to enter the contest by submitting a video of a Rube Goldberg machine that completes the task of revealing a Seder plate. There will be two divisions of the competition: middle school (5th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade).

A panel of judges representing both RAVSAK and Technion will review the video submissions.

Winners will be featured on Technion’s YouTube channel and RAVSAK’s website. Winning schools will receive the following prizes:

  • First place prize – A state-of-the-art 3D printer for your maker space or science lab
  • Second place prize – Arduino electronics kits for your science class

    All submissions are due by 10pm ET on Monday, March 21, 2016.
