What we're studying:
We are students from Catonsville High School, including both studying engineering in PLTW and students new to engineering completely. We all challenge ourselves in our math and science classes, but also exercise creativity in our elective courses.

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"I've tried to move like three times, but every time everything falls." -Kathleen Stubbs

Why we think we should win:
Our team is comprised of members all new to Rube Goldberg, except one. Rather than be discouraged by obstacles, we persevered. Our main goal was to truly embrace the spirit of Rube Goldberg by making the funniest machine we possibly could, even if it meant embarrassing ourselves in our introduction. We think we should win because our machine makes our audience very happy, and we all grew closer hrough this process.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Turning on a light

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

If you have ever wondered if the characters in all your favorite spy and heist movies came together at the same casino, you're not alone. Our Rube Goldberg is a mission, not impossible, to get a coin in a piggy bank. Be on the lookout for nods to the movies Ocean's Eleven, Casino Royale, Mission Impossible, and Get Smart.
