Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"And I, uh, I wonder how anybody can thin his personality changes with his success. I've had quite a bit of success but I feel that I'm just the same person as I always was." -Rube GoldbergWhy we think we should win:
We should win because we have put a lot of time and energy into this machine. We have spent many nights working to make our design as good as we possibly could. We stayed with our overall theme and built with it so that we are able to tell a story with our machine. We have worked well as a team.
Our machine reflects one of pop culture's icons as he is searching for the "Breakfast of Champions". It is full of images from the Indiana Jones movie series beginning with the fertility goddess being removed from her place of prominence. You will see a plane, a period jeep and cargo truck as Indy pursues his goal of getting a bowl of cereal with milk. On this adventure, he will encounter pyramids, a volcano, human sacrifice, snakes and rats...all of them ready to strike fear in the heart of our hero!
