What we're studying:
We are studying the collaborative design process and simple machines.

Why we think we should win:
We started out very strong, but then met many challenges along the way. We never gave up and worked very hard right up until the end.

"3, 2, 1," BOOM! The cannon explosion causes Peeta to jump, making him knock over a cannon ball. The cannon ball rolls into a tribute, causing her sword to fall into the lake. The clock starts to turn, and lightning flashes from the sky. The lightning hits a rack of shields, causing them to fall over. A helmet is knocked aside, which goes in an earthen tunnel. The helmet hits a fallen tree, causing it to tilt. Coconuts launch into a cart carrying jabber jays. The cart rolls into a trap. The trap sets off the mutts, making them run. The mutts run into one of the remaining three tributes, killing him . Another trap is sprung, and a boulder rolls after the two tributes. The cannon fires again, and the boulder slows to a stop. Katniss and Peeta win!
