What we're studying:
For Rube Goldberg, we are working on the concepts of simple machines, pulleys, 3D printing, marble tracks

Why we think we should win:
We are awesome! We have a lot of diversity in our project and a lot of diversity in how we think!

The machine utilizes space and walls to create a maze in which objects traverse through the maze to get the penny in the piggy bank (well, a bear ban... because we are the Maranacook bears!)

Our Step List

Step 1. marble is places at top of traverse
Step 2. Marble goes through the traverse and into a bucket
Step 3: a domino effect happens
Step 4. Another marble goes through a traverse
Step 5. Object goes into the piggy bank (bear-bank, 3D made by us!)
