What we're studying:

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"My philosophy is if you worry, you only suffer twice." - Newt Scamander

Why we think we should win:
We should win because we are creating a legacy for our school. Our robotics team is in its first year and majority of our team doesn't even know we exist.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
- Tie a knot.
- Turning on a light switch.
- Fill a cup with liquid.

Our Rube Goldberg theme is a robbery by a pig. The design is made out of household items that you can find anywhere.
