What we're studying:

Why we think we should win:
We should win because of the amount of time we spent working on this, along with the amount of team structure we have learned through this process. So many brilliant ideas all came together to make this machine do one simple task, and that alone is pretty amazing to us. Plenty of laughs and frustrations along the way, have led to us building a machine that we can be proud of spending our time and effort building.

A mix of childhood toys and a playground theme, brings together the fact that sometimes we get little cuts a bruises that we all know only a bandaid can fix for a small child.
