A team of 10 Providence Day School students finished second in the Rube Goldberg Machine Contest, hosted by the McColl Center for Fine Arts.

It was the first time the school entered the event, which involves completing a simple task in a complex way. In this competition, participants were to build a series of at least 20 steps that would ultimately result in zipping a zipper. Lincoln Charter School in Lincolnton took first place.

Choosing a Toy Story theme, the students created 21 steps including rolling marbles, bouncy balls, falling books (for a domino effect), Hot Wheels, a mouse trap, a fan, Bert (from Bert and Ernie) in a sailing car, a doll and a flying Buzz Lightyear.

The team, led by senior Alice Li, included seniors Eli Barr, Kendall Carroll, Christine Dawson, David Edwards, Andrew Liu, Savannah Morgan, Michael Weinrib, Emily Young and junior Nicholas Truong.
