URBANA -- Some grade schoolers are the "Smartest and Most Original" in the area. Mrs. Smith's 5th grade class took home the top prize at least week's Rube Goldberg Competition. Their machine has a "Pac-Man" theme.

Students brought all kinds of parts from home to put together. They used ten steps to draw a line on a piece of paper. These young engineers also had to do daily reports in a journal and make advertising for their project. They say it was a good way to practice teamwork and they needed everyone to make it happen.
