Rube Goldberg machine

Okay, I don't, for a minute think these three young girls came up with this all on their own. And it doesn't matter. What does is fewer than 3 in 10 graduates in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are women. And barely 1 in 10 engineers are women. Why? Stereotyping? That's gotta stop. And this video is just the panacea.

Think of how much fun this must have been to build. Move over Rube Goldberg. Make way for Ruth Goldberg... and her friends.

Wow, I remember this. Wouldn't it be great if there were more like this to get kids interested? Via Boing Boing.

Laffy Note: When I was very, very young and an aspiring animator, one of the Oscar-winning producers of this film, Les Goldman, hired me on as an apprentice (not for this project, of course).  What a memory jolt, and in a good way! Thanks Paddy, for posting this!
