Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
Never let your schooling interfere with your education - Mark Twain

Why we think we should win:
We turned our loss last season into a positive motivational lesson. Our team has a great mix of creativity and ingenuity. We should win for our band's sousaphone player who has sacrificed his instrument bell that we might pour cereal like champions.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
some ideas include... turning the page of a book. Opening a can. Pouring a cup of coffee/tea

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

This machine is a fun and unique way to pour a bowl of cereal that entertains you while you watch it get poured into the bowl. Then, you may eat it! A bonus is... it looks super-duper cool.
