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:
Tiberias, this year we celebrate 2000 years its a very nice present for our city's birthday Also Tiberias Is in the periphery and some people think that the, kids in the periphery are'nt as good as others and they are'nt as smart we want to show them they are worng.

To open a pot's cover



Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

We are ninth graders from Nofarim Junior High, a school in Tiberias, an Israeli city on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee. We would like to describe our recycled machine.
We have here two girls waking up at the sound of an alarm clock which activates the machine that prepares breakfast for them.
How it works
The alarm clock creates a vibration making the tennis ball move towards the dominoes which at their turn hit a marble that lands on the fan switch. The switch turns the fan on and the air created from the fan moves the ship with a sharp tip at its end. The ship bumps into the balloon which bursts. There are five marbles inside the balloon. They go down on an inclined plane and land on a swing which goes down too and releases a cylinder. The latter pulls a thread tied to a piece of paper with a marble on it. The marble passes through a funnel and hits the marble on the track.
There are 5 tracks, 4 of them with tooth brushes at their ends, serving as cranes. The two upper marbles go down the cylinders and the last marble goes down into a cup which lifts the swing and then a hammer goes up hitting the bottom of the bottle. The bottle contains some vinegar which flows down and creates a chemical reaction with the baking soda. This causes fermentation that makes the ball slip down the slide. It then hits the marble which in its turn hits the marker pen that hits the discs. All the discs fall and the last one hits the robot sensor. The robot starts moving forward and rolls the wheel. The rolling wheel has two containers attached to it, one with cereals and one with milk. The cereals and the milk are poured into a bowl when the wheel rolls.
Our Incredible Machine makes breakfast, the most important meal of the day. As Maimonides said: “Eat like a king in the morning, a prince at noon, and a peasant at dinner.” Maimonides is buried in our city, Tiberias which celebrates this year 2000 years old. Winning this competition will be a great gift for Tiberias anniversary!

Our machine was built by the 9th grade students of Amal Rav Tchumi Nofarim Ba Galil school in the city of Tveria (Tiberias), Israel. We live in on the Kinneret Sea of Galilee.
The machine was built by the students of the ATIDIM after school program for excellence in Science and Technology
