Team Leader: Deb Webster
Team Members: 7
Invitations: 0

What we're studying:
Right now in history, we are learning about WW2; specifically the Atomic bomb. In writing we do a program called IEW, Institute for Excellence in Writing. We do many assignments, and add what we call checklist items into them; and much more.

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
“Silence is the music of wisdom.” Apoorve Dubey

Why we think we should win:
We work very hard at the Eddy School and learn much. We learn a lot of responsibility here. We thought hard about our steps and how it would look comical, and that a story was being told in our Rube Goldberg machine.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
open a book

Our machine tells the story of a snowstorm happening, causing a skier to head to the mountain. He rides the chairlift, gets knocked down the slopes by snowbanks, and has a crash. He then rides in an ambulance to the hospital, is put on a gurney, and has a band-aid applied to his bloody arm.
