Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
Atidim moto: (Hebrew)
תהיה מציאותי. תחלום.
Be realistic. Dream.

Why we think we should win:
The wonderful work that stands before you is a work that was built with a great deal of cooperation and dedication until late hours. The machine is built according to physical terms, most of the parts we have prepared ourselves.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
The challenge that we offer for next year is to draw some kind of shape on a piece of paper.

Our machine was built by the 9th grade students of Amirim school in the city of Ofakim, Israel. We live on the south of Israel by the border with Gaza.
The machine was built by the students of the ATIDIM after school program for excellence in Science and Technology.
