Student News

ZackTarleZack Tarle, a seventh grader at Spring Garden Waldorf School, won The University of Akron annual Rubber Band Contest for Young Inventors. Tarle received $2,500 for first place in the Arts and Leisure Division for his board game Spyder – a marble game for all ages.

He says, “The game combines rubber bands, marbles and a playing board in the shape of a square. Outlining the board is a wall of rubber bands. It has four holes in the corners and one in the center. Around each hole are two motes and around the game board are tons of small holes arranged geometrically where you can stick pegs.”

This was the fifth year of the annual contest, which The Akron Global Polymer Academy says “is designed to encourage students in grades 5-8 to demonstrate their creativity and ingenuity by creating an invention that incorporates the use of rubber bands.”
