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:
Becuase we didn't have
enough time like all the other school.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
In 2020 should be hammer that get a nail into a wood.

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Our machine was built by the students of Yeshiva High School Hispin in the Golan Heights, Israel. The machine was built by the students of the ATIDIM after school program for excellence in Science and Technology.

Our Step List

1 Electricity- sound Telephone activates song
2 Sound- motion Loudspeaker propels pin
3 Motion- pressure Pin pricks balloon
4 Pressure- gravitational potential energy (GPE) Water pours
5 GPE- pressure Water presses on scales
6 Pressure- kinetic energy Scales tip
7 Kinetic energy- conservation of momentum Scales divert a track
8 Momentum- GPE Marbles rise to a height
9 GPE- kinetic energy Marbles roll on the track
10 Kinetic energy- conservation of momentum Marbles hit the bottle
11 Conservation of momentum- kinetic energy Bottle rolls down an incline
12 Kinetic energy- conservation of momentum Bottle hits cup
13 conservation of momentum- GPE Cup spills
14 GPE- pressure Water pours into a funnel and fills cup
15 Pressure- tension Cup fills and pulls a string
16 Tension- kinetic energy String pulls and lifts balloon
17 Kinetic energy- GPE Balloon lifts and pours baking soda into bottle
18 Chemical energy - pressure Baking soda drops into vinegar
19 Chemical energy- pressure Baking soda and vinegar have chemical reaction creating gas
20 Pressure- kinetic energy Gas inflates balloon and lifts it
21 Kinetic energy- conservation of momentum Balloon lifts and bumps into track
22 conservation of momentum- GPE Balloon lifts track
23 GPE- kinetic energy Marbles roll on lifted track
24 Kinetic energy- pressure Marbles roll down into container
25 Pressure-tension Marbles weigh on container and pull string upwards
26 Tension- kinetic energy String is pulled, bringing down container and releasing barrier from plastic boat
27 Kinetic energy- elastic energy Released boat is pulled by a rubber band attached to it.
28 Elastic energy- kinetic energy Boat is pulled and sails across aquarium
29 Kinetic energy- conservation of momentum Boat hits cylinder and knocks it down
30 Conservation of momentum- kinetic energy Cylinder falls and moves in horizontal motion
31 Kinetic energy- GPE Cylinder falls downward and pulls string
32 GPE- electric energy String is pulled and disconnects electrical circuit
33 Electric energy- magnetic energy Disconnection shuts off electromagnet
34 Magnetic energy- GPE Magnets shuts off and releases weight
35 GPE- kinetic energy Weight falls
36 Kinetic energy- tension Weight pulls string
37 Tension- GPE String releases and drops barrier
38 GPE- kinetic energy Car travels on track
39 Kinetic energy- electric energy Car lowers a soldering iron
40 Electric energy- heat energy Soldering iron burns melts fishing line
41 Heat energy- elastic energy Fishing line releases rubber band
42 3elastic energy- GPE Rubber band hits marbles into track
43 GPE- kinetic energy Marbles roll on track into pipe
44 Kinetic energy- conservation of momentum Marbles hit battery
45 conservation of momentum- electric energy Battery enters copper coil
46 Electric energy- magnetic energy Batter closes electrical circuit inside copper coil and the current in the coil creates a magnetic field
47 Magnetic energy- kinetic energy Magnetic field pushes battery inside the coil
48 Kinetic energy- conservation of momentum Battery hits coin
49 conservation of momentum- GPE Coin gets struck and is released in motion on track
50 GPE- kinetic energy Coin rolls in the track and drops into cashbox
