What we're studying:
We have been studying velocity, distance, displacement, acceleration, force, and graphs. We compare position time graphs to velocity time graphs and motion maps.

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
Think outside the box and challenge yourself! Have fun!!

Why we think we should win:
We should win because we have put in numerous hours brainstorming, creating, and analyzing how our project can be unique, efficient, and within the requirements. We have members on our team who love to build, create, and organize allowing our team to really feed off of one another. We are a less experienced team with just one member who participated in this competition last year.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Our suggestions for next year are tying a shoe, tying a tie, taking a picture, and winding a clock.
