Why we think we should win:
We have unique ideas and we are determinant

Our machine follows the season. We start out in the cold of winter as represented by the blue water and snowflakes. It then flows into spring by moving the ball in the blooming tree which knocks the lemonade pitcher on the sand buckets representing summer. During Fall, the scarecrow falls off his hay bale and starts the sprinkler to knock the shovel over and apply the band-aid to the inflated hand.

Our Step List

1. Pour the water through the funnel and tubing
2. The water fills up the cup
3. The cup pulls the pulley down
