Our Step List

1. A golf ball rolls down an incline plane
2. The ball falls to a lever which redirects the ball to a tube
3. The ball falls into a cup, starting the pulley system
4. The pulley system goes up causing the dog to slide down the incline plane
5. This activates another pulley system
6. The system hits a cup causing marbles to fall into a tube
7. The marbles roll down the tube to hit a ball on a screw
8. The ball will knock over a cup
9. The cup will hit the blocks starting a domino reaction
10. The blocks will pull a string which releases the coins from a pocket
11. The coins will roll down an incline plane into the piggy bank
