Our machine consists of a trip through the Super Mario World with designs from the video game where we incorporated solely scrapped parts. In an effort to pour cereal in a bowl in the finale of our Rube Goldberg, our machine is compiled of triggers involving bike wheels, a scrapped table and book shelf from our classroom, string, pulley systems, marbles and hidden surprises. Through the force of gravity, the force of tension, and the applied forces, we were able to skim through the efforts of our machine into a success story.
