What we're studying:
We are studying force and motion in science and how to write a creative storing in English. Rube Goldberg in perfect because it incorporates both of these things! :)

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"I think it is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary." -Elon Musk

Why we think we should win:
We should win because we have worked really hard with very limited time. Our team has also hit a lot of bumps along the way to get where we are.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Next year, we should have to put toothpaste on a toothbrush. :)


Our machine will help a person with a disability poor a bowl of cereal.
