What we're studying:
Currently, the seventh grade engineering team is studying Design and Modeling while the eighth grade engineering team is studying Automation and RoboticsOur Team Leader's favorite quote:
"Measure twice cut once"- unknownWhy we think we should win:
We think we should win because we had a variety of steps and simple systems. Our theme was well thought out and well executed.Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Open a book/ flip a page; spin a fidget spinner; Crack an eggFavorite Rube Goldberg video:
Tom & Jerry are up to their usual shenanigans. This time, Tom feels he has the upper hand. Tom has set up a mouse trap to finally catch Jerry (or so he thinks). He pushes the spoon and goes into the living room so he doesn't get caught. Jerry noticed the obvious trap, but he still desired the cheese. He used finesse to grab the cheese without setting off the trap. Jerry sees a car left behind by one of the kids. He sits there eating the cheese and notices the trap set off and starts moving. Luckily, Jerry is the only one who can fit behind the oven. Tom is fooled once again.
