Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"Make it work"

Why we think we should win:
"This is the first year we have participated in the Rube Goldberg competition and we have really gone all in. We have invested so much time, effort, and brainpower to make this machine successful. We want to show our peers that it's possible to attempt something new and still be successful if you do your best and try your hardest." -Amna

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Cracking an Egg!

One word. Flavortowne!

We turned Guy Fieri's famous show "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" into a machine that saves...taste buds. We start out at the diner portion of LGA diner, where a roller coaster car zips through a line of tasty condiments and hits a can of creamy chicken soup. the can hits two balls: One that "Drives in" to the drive in portion of the restaurant, and another that takes you straight to the flavor-coaster. That transfers the flavor straight to Guy Fieri's mouth! The coaster cart "takes a dive" into the dives portion of LGA Diner. Guy Fieri enters his car and jumps from the car to the monster truck. After all this adventure, Guy Fieri is in need of a savory strip of bacon, cooked by America's finest LGA Diner.
