What we're studying:
Cereal, teamwork, creativity, simple machines, flow of energy, and how to plan ahead.

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"So there!" "Go team!"

Why we think we should win:
We use new concepts, have a current theme, spent a ton of hours planning and making the machine and we have a message.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Turn on a radio, open a can, bounce coins into a cup, or open a book.


Loyal is making a machine that represents a fictitious DEPARTMENT OF RESEARCH - CEREAL.
It is divided into three sections.
The first section has a liberal point of view and researches a cereal's nutritional value and visual characteristics .
The second section has a conservative point of view and researches a cereal's crunchability and thermal characteristics.
Because of conflicts between the rival sections, the central COMPROZONE was established to merge their cereals into AMERICAN FLAKES!
