What we're studying:
We are a "club" team this year because Physics is offered every other year.

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"It may be the ugliest but it's ours!"

Why we think we should win:
We spent many after school hours to work to make our steps consistent and using objects in a new way.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Play an instrument

We decided on a doctor's office theme and used objects that you would find in the waiting room, exam room, or be given to take home. Our boy ends up only needing a bandaid.
