Goldberg Scholastics is a competition hosted by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers in De Lasalle University aimed at bringing out students' creative thinking in the aspect of engineering design. In the process of developing their own Rube Goldberg Machine, it is also hoped that the students gain interest in taking an engineering course in the future.
In 2009, a pilot competition was held between a few groups of high school students. These students rose to the challenge admirably. This year, SME intends to reach further and initiate a national competition.
