Gold­berg's magh­ines are de­signed to ac­com­plish a sim­ple task in the most con­vo­luted, ab­surd way pos­si­ble. The stu­dents ma­chines are ex­hib­ited to the public in the hal on the day of the com­pe­ti­tion.

Pea­gler said he had re­ceived con­grat­u­la­tions from many peo­ple for his award.

“It re­ally takes lov­ing the kids and lov­ing the place you work at,” Pea­gler said. “That drives you to do the ex­tra work that it takes.”
