What we're studying:
We have been learning from our experiences over the month we had been working, that is how we study. We study the way machines work and how we can build them ourselves. What solutions work for what problems and much more.

P.s Were not licensed physicists.

Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
If you want something, invent it. You're not getting a T.A.R.D.I.S. for your birthday ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Why we think we should win:
We've been working hard and persevering over the problems we've had.

At this point we just want our machine to work.

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Pulling out a cork from a bottle.

Favorite Rube Goldberg video:

We have hand-built our machine from the ground up. Instead of using pre-made products, we used P.V.C. pipes, glue and lots of determination to customize our machine over the last given TWO weeks of hard work. At least we tried and had a fun time persevering over the MANY problems we have had.
