What we're studying:
The machine was built by the students of the ATIDIM after school program for excellence. We focus on Science, Mathematics and English and are exposed to future options in Academic institutes and the High-Tec industry.

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

Why we think we should win:
We should win because our machine is awesome, amusing , nice aesthetic shape, with simple parts and tools from the kitchen, and ,many physical principles, with no help by any professional person , just the team and our teacher. and we believe you'll love it when you watch the video.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
our suggestion for next year is to attach lego piece on top of a lego tower

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Our machine was built by the 9th grade students of Koptan Halabi school in the city of Daliyat al-Karmel, Israel. We live on the Carmel Mountain by the Mediterranean Sea.
The machine was built by the students of the ATIDIM after school program for excellence in Science and Technology

Our Step List

Our step list:

1. first move, speaker plays music, using cell phone (light energy transformed to sound energy)
2. the speaker makes a domino piece fall and pull a black paper tied to it, off a solar cell robot, (sound to kinetic E.)
3. that will expose the cell to the light, the light energy transforms to electric energy then to kinetic energy,
4. the robot moves and turns a wheel(transfer of kinetic energy )
5. the wheel hand pushes a ball tied to another ball and to two magnets , the balls will fall off the table pulling the two magnets with them, (potential energy to kinetic energy).
6. pulling the magnets releases a metal ball all the way down a spool , potential energy to kinetic energy).
7. the metal ball hits a bowling bottles tied to a cup and pulls it down off the shelf. (transfer of kinetic energy )
8. the cup falling releases a ball that starts to roll, (potential energy to kinetic energy) it hits another ball tied to a piece of carton that is blocking a box
on another shelf
9. the ball and the blocker fall down (potential and kinetic energy),
10. that releases a box with metal ball in it, the box starts to flip flop ( center of gravity principle )
11. it hits a tong and flip it ( the principle of laverege ) which will release a wheel
12. the wheel roll down on a track and pushes a stick ( the principle of laverege )
13. this releases another stick and rice bag to fall down,( the principle of laverege )
14. the bag will pull the rope which is attached to a water pot, and pour the water into the bowl,
15. the water raises up and
16. makes kalcar balls float and raises( the principle o laverege )
17. it releases magnet pandol ( the principle of leverage)
18. magnet pandol pull another magnet then it hits stick,
19. that will release the another stick and a pancake pan on it ( the principle of laverege )
20. which release another pandol, then the ball will spins around
21. It hits the hand stick it falls on the another hand ( the principle o laverege )
22. it releases a metering scale (spring elastic energy transformed to kenetic ) that hits a stick which releases the wheel
23. the wheel rolls
24. it pulls a rope that is connected to the milk machine
25. and the other rope a towel paper roll
26. this releases the cereal box rope blocker and finally the cereal and the milk will pure into the bowl.
