Matzo, the plagues, and even the burning bush make the cut in this video.
A group of students at Technion in Israel banded together to create an elaborate Rube Goldberg machine in honor of Passover, the Jewish holiday celebrating the ancient Israelites’ liberation and exodus from Egypt. The engineers and architects take us through the story of Moses, complete with a burning bush, several plagues, and even the parting of the Red Sea.
It all circles back around to unveil a perfect Seder plate, a symbol of the holiday, for the students to enjoy. Sure, it would have been easier just to lift the lid off themselves—but that wouldn’t have been nearly as fun.
Clarification 2:56pm CT: A previous version of this article called the Seder plate the meal of Passover; it is actually a representation of the elements of the Passover holiday.
