What's Right in the School District of Janesville

What’s Right in the School District of Janesville (SDJ) is a forum to recognize outstanding performances and achievements by SDJ employees, students and schools.

Craig Engineering Club and Advisor/Teacher Jeff Leider

The Craig Engineering Club took first place at the Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC) Rube Goldberg Machine Regional Contest, registering the best showing they have ever had.  They also received the "Most Rube-like Award" and $925 in winnings!  The prize money will pay their entry fee and bussing for future contests.  In addition, the club will donate a portion of their winnings.

According to Mr. Leider, the group had great, experienced, senior leadership this year.  Many students helped design and build the machine, in particular, Drew Overly and Keegan Leekey.  Lorin Cox and Lee Ping Ong did an excellent job presenting the machine to the judges. 

The Craig Engineering Club will compete at the National Competition on March 16th at WCTC.
