READY, SET, GO… Radiate Students; competition is on, time to show your talents. Tonight each small group will receive a service bell, (you know one of those annoying bells that someone always has to ring… more then once, while at a reception area), you then get one week to build a Rube Goldberg Machine with the end result being the bell has to be rung. Video tape it from start to finish and bring it next Wednesday. We will then hold a vote to see who the winner is. What’s the prize you ask? An ice cream cake from DQ for the whole group to enjoy.
