What we're studying:
We have learned a lot about force and motion as well as Teamwork! Everyone's ideas are important and should be considered when planning our machine. We have learned that some ideas, while good in conception, just don't work in reality. So, it is back to the drawing board to see how we can get the next step accomplished.

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"It needs more speed!"

Help - our bank is being robbed! Quick - catch that get-away car before they get away with all our money and we can't deposit it into the piggy bank!
