Why we think we should win:
We should win because most of our machine/contraption is made out of recyclable materials from home including the a classroom recycling bin. Our machine includes humor. We worked extremely hard and the whole machine was kid built. Our teacher helped us test our machine and gave us ideas. The most part we worked as a team and we made simultaneous ideas by working together. This is why we should win.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Sharpen a Pencil; Staple a Piece of Paper

Our Machine is creativity meets recycled
junk. The machine uses wheels, ramps, garbage buckets and balls to apply a band- aid . This machine is truly all child made. The kids only used what they could build with their own two hands, so there is a lot of tape and glue!
