What we're studying:
We are currently students in a capstone class call Engineering Design and Development (EDD). Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
Left Twix is better than Right Twix, hands down. Why we think we should win:
We use 100% reclaimed materials from a construction program that was at the school over 10 years ago. Last years machine was made completely out of building blocks, bricks, lumber, and tools. Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Pour a glass of lemonade.
The machine is compromised of many objects that can be found with in our school clubs and teachers desk.

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.
