We are studying how to drill screws into boards straight. We are also studying the way in which to build and create walls that will sustain our chain reactions. Lastly, we are currently studying how to create chain reactions with different bedroom objects.

“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try!”

Knock on the Door

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Turn Off the Bedroom Light!
It is a hassle to get up and turn out your bedroom light. Wouldn't it be cool if you could set up a machine to turn it off for you? That's what our machine will be doing for this year's contest- it will turn off the bedroom light!

Our Close-ups: Task Completion

Our Machine Verbal Presentation. This is your team’s chance to shine and be creative! We want to hear the story your machine tells, and understand how the steps represent the theme and key elements of your narrative. The Machine Introduction should not be a step-by-step explanation of how the steps work. This is where your personality, humor, and team spirit engages the audience and gets them excited to see your machine.
