(WEST LAFAYETTE) - The 24th annual Rube Goldberg Machine Contest event will take place next Saturday at Purdue University with the winner moving on to the March 31 national competition.

Purdue teams have won the national competition for the past four years. Both the regional and national events will take place in the Purdue Armory, with doors opening at 9:30AM. The contests, sponsored by Phi Chapter of Theta Tau fraternity, are free and open to the public.

For this year's competition, the challenge is to squeeze the juice from an orange into a pitcher and then pour the juice into a glass. Last year's regional and national winning team, the Purdue Society of Professional Engineers, took 215 steps to shred five sheets of paper.
