ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Physics students at Eldorado High School are tasked with building a rocket out of completely recycled materials. Each spring, students are challenged to build a Rube Goldberg machine from the recycled materials.

The machine needs to perform a series of steps to complete an action. This year, the students are celebrating NASA’s Artemis program with a lunar landing theme. In this competition, the machines must take at least ten steps to land a small rocket on the moon. The winner of the event will be announced later this week.
