What we're studying:

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"If you are having a bad day today, don't focus to hard on it because tomorrow may always be better in the end."

Why we think we should win:
We should win because we worked very hard to finish this project and had to deal with many issues concerning our group and project. ( That's an argumentive fallacy by the way. Effort doesn't merit reward. ;) )

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
We think next year the challenge should be blow a bubble.

The machine comprises of a "maze/pingpong-type" of platform that then goes through a series of contraptions like strings and rails to ultimately apply the band-aid.
