Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"A Rube Goldberg Machine, in it's essence, a trial-and-error thing." ~Rube Goldberg

Why we think we should win:
We think we should win because we have put a lot of time and effort through trial and error into our machine.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Icing a cake
Open/close a book
Paint something

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

Our machine is the Birthday Party Prep. In it, we have Rube Goldberg waking up on his birthday, and getting ready for the day.
