General Mills cereal boxes can be turned into simple machines
Talk about repurposing -- your next box of cereal could be turned into a simple machine!
General Mills - in partnership with Rube Goldberg, Incorporated - has put out cereal boxes that can be transformed into one of six Rube Goldberg-type machines.
The specially-marked boxes include Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Cookie Crisp, Lucky Charms, and Reese's Puffs.
Each box includes instructions -- meant to be fun and easy -- that promote science, technology, engineering, and math education.
Post a photo of your machine on Instagram or the General Mills Cereal Facebook page, for a chance to win a college scholarship.
