Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"Let's get this bread!"

Why we think we should win:
We think we should win because we put a lot of time and creativity into our Rube Goldberg machine. We also have a can do work ethic and we don't give up even when the odds are against us.

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Hello ladies and gentlemen! We are the students of CHS and this is our Rube Goldberg. The theme of our Rube is Toy Story.
Andy is at school and the toys have taken over his room. Woody got bored and decided to try to get a coin in Ham from across the room. With Buzz's help, Woody set up a complex path to get the coin in Ham.
He began by kicking a purple milk can which starts a chain reaction getting the coin inside of Ham. Enjoy the show while Andy's not here.
