Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"When life gives you lemons, be unique and make orange juice."

Why we think we should win:
We think we should when because we have worked so hard!

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Get a crayons out of a crayon box, water in a cup, pet food in a bowl, chips into salsa, and toothpaste on a toothbrush.

Our machine is truly a pile of junk. We each brought all kinds stuff from home. We have two Styrofoam blocks from Christmas decor. Then we have wrapping paper tube as our first starting point. We have have a pvc pipe stabilizing the tube. We then have our toy blocks, cardboard,and painters tape, as a track. Then we have a pink toy car. We also incorporated tape rolls and playing cards. We brought more toy blocks to use as stairs for the toy dominoes. We also brought in our marbles and paper tube to create a tunnel. Next, we used cardboard to act like a bumper pad. The marbles then hit more dominoes and random toys.
