Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"when pigs fly"

Why we think we should win:
we are a team of all freshman who started out 3/4 of the club with pretty much only two active members, and we managed to recruit some new helpers who wanted to learn and help with our engineering in the past week. our inexperience matched with our dedication in the past week to pull though really makes our project more impressive and we are proud.

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Our machine "Pigs" is seeing if pigs can fly. Our piggy bank will fly up to reach the penny. Its based on a farm with scarecrows, a barn, tomatoes, hay barrel. cows, pigs, crops, and horses. Its a normal day on the farm, just with flying pigs.
