Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
Where's the duct-tape??!! ~Everyone on the team.

Why we think we should win:
Our team thinks we should win for several reasons. Not only have we demonstrated teamwork to build a competition level Rube Goldberg machine, but we have worked to get younger children involved in STEM. We have had younger brothers and sisters in the garage working with us, sparking curiosity, and learning. We think our machine starts with an amusing story line and performance, runs with a numerous amount of household items, implements solid engineering principles, appeals to the eye with amusing decorations, and ends with a creative approach to applying the band-aid.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
We think next year's challenge should be turning the pages of a book.

First aid responders attempt to deliver a band-aid to an injured skier, and they'll go through as many complicated steps as it takes to get the job done.
