GOSHEN — Nick Taylor and Jackson Kenyon took a calculated risk in preparing for the “Mission Possible” event at the regional Science Olympiad Saturday.

The Northridge High School students introduced three new steps into their Rube Goldberg-style machine, which was tasked, ultimately, with raising a platform with a 9V battery on it. To get to that step, which was worth the lion’s share of the points available, their machine cycled through 10 other steps using things like golf balls, ramps and liquid-filled chambers.
