Newton's 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Laws of Motion. We have also been studying kinetic and potential energy. We have been learning about velocity, speed, acceleration, distance, and displacement, as well. We have also learned to be patient and persevere.Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk."
-Thomas EdisonWhy we think we should win:
We think we should win because we have devoted plenty of our time to building and improving this machine and we have been working very hard to make ours the best and the most creative.Suggestion for next year's challenge:

Our Step List
We turn on the grill and our steaks start spinning out of control.
A cheese slice on the edge of the grill hits our bacon (domino).
The bacon hits our other cheese slices.
The last cheese slice causes the over-sauced noodle to fall and pull a carrot with it.
The carrot releases the rolling pin, which rolls down our bacon strips.
The rolling pin knocks our meatball through a Krinkle's can.
The meatball falls into a can which pulls another meatball out of our candle.
That meatball falls and pulls a noodle with it causing it to pull the aluminum foil out of the box.
A crumb falls and hits a cracked egg and falls onto a large marshmallow.
The marshmallow falls into our salad bowl, which causes the other bowl to come up.
The other bowl tilted our water cup and spilled all the water.
The water erased the chalkboard which had the Daily Special on it.
