Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities" -Albus Dumbledore

Why we think we should win:
We put a lot of time and effort into our project. We want to make our school name known and we want the people of the world to be entertained with our machine!

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Some cool challenges for next would be: to turn a page in a book, click a pen, open a present, put on a bracelet, or putting on glasses.

The circus performing hamster, Sideshow Sam, works the night shift. During the day, he likes to #TurnUp at the carnival (hence the sweatshirt). One day, as he enters the carnival, he is so excited he slips and falls on a banana peel. He doesn't want to lose his vibe, but since he doesn't have opposable thumbs, he needs a machine to apply his band-aid to his cut. He isn't about dat basic life.
