The BYU College of Engineering announced the winners for the third annual Rube Goldberg Challenge.

A Rube Goldberg machine is “a contraption that is deliberately over-engineered to perform a simple task in a complicated fashion,” according to their website. Students were invited to create a 15-second machine, record a video of it and send it to the college.

This year’s winners were Carson Reed, Nathan Crane, Bond Headlee, Kevin Steele and Jake Hunter.

BYU Singers were invited, along with ten other chamber choirs, to compete in Spain with choirs from ten different countries.

BYU Singers leader Andrew Crane said organizers seek out competitors by researching previous competitions to assess skill before inviting them.

The group placed second place in the folk, or cultural, set and third in the polyphony, or classical, set. “I am extremely proud of how BYU Singers fared at the competition,” Andrew Crane, the leader of the choral group, said.
