What we're studying:
Recycling/Upcycling

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
Just look around!

Why we think we should win:
We want to win because we worked extremely hard and the whole machine by using recycling materials found in our school. we spent less than ten dollars on the machine but many many hours thinking about, planing, and building the machine.


The fist thing we did was we thought of the theme. We shared ideas, and Emma thought of a theme park. But then it was hard to make it look like a theme park so after months of trying to come up with easy ideas for our theme park we desided to change the theme so then we came up with upcycling.

Our Close-ups: Task Completion

Our Machine Verbal Presentation. This is your team’s chance to shine and be creative! We want to hear the story your machine tells, and understand how the steps represent the theme and key elements of your narrative. The Machine Introduction should not be a step-by-step explanation of how the steps work. This is where your personality, humor, and team spirit engages the audience and gets them excited to see your machine.
